Costume jewellery is a type of jewellery, made of malleable inexpensive materials such as pewter, nickel or brass with imitation gems such as rhinestones or lucite and plated with rhodium, gold or any other plating materials in order to complement a particular fashionable garment.

In the past, jewellers either used to refuse costume jewellery repair request or these repairs used be very costly for the customers. Jewellers who took on these jobs used to solder the broken areas with a torch so the heat was applied to a very large area of the jewellery. Due to heat transfer, the stones had to be removed and the plating used to burn. Then the jewellery had to be re-plated and then stones had to be re-set again.
