Gypsy Jewelry: A Gypsy necklace. Gypsies added stones to their earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and belts---some of the most popular Gypsy jewelry. Gypsies usually employed synthetic stones, because of difficulties in verifying a gemstone's authenticity. The gold, however, is always real, because Gypsies "knew the gold couldn't be faked easily."
