Costume Jewelry Collectors Int’l (CJCI) is an online organization dedicated to the study of collectible costume jewelry and supporting its related communities. We also host yearly conventions around the United States for jewelry enthusiasts.
We exist to help promote costume jewelry collecting, attract new collectors to help our hobby grow and thrive, and to educate those who are interested in learning more about the history of vintage jewelry and collectible jewelry of the future.
