The costume jewellery industry flourished in the 1980s, and women experienced a new freedom and confidence to wear frankly fake fashion jewellery. In the USA Television shows like Dallas and Dynasty epitomized an era of glamour and decadence. The fashion hallmarks of the decade were big shoulders and big hair which was teased and ratted out. This ‘big’ hair cried out to be balanced by glitzy jewellery in gilt settings with huge fake looking stones. Hair accessories of the period were certainly neither small nor delicate!
