Let’s Get Pinned!

Jewelry, like everything else in the fashion world is cyclical.  With statement bib necklaces and knuckle dusting cocktail rings having run their course for quite some time now, it won’t be long before brooches have their moment in the spotlight again.  Fortunately, there are amazing examples at every price point.  These beauties range from $36.00 on up to six figures!  Can you tell which is which?

  7. I have always loved brooches. While I sell mostly necklaces in my shop, it's the brooches I am always drawn to when buying.

  8. The owl is so beautiful; and he looks like he has a real expression on his face! Amazing.
    The feather one is my favorite!! 🙂
    Is the first one the most expensive? That's my guess.

  9. I completely agree that broaches are about to have their hay day. They are a long forgotten accessory that you can really do a lot with. I can't wait to get back home and raid my grandma's jewelry box for some old classics 🙂

    These are fab. I have a few vintage ones that I picked up at the Puce de Vanves a few years back and love wearing them as a little bit of unexpected sparkle – especially with a simple pair of jeans, a white T and black jacket…
    Have lovely day!

  30. I would love to see them make a comeback. A friend looked really chic recently when you pinned an old brooch onto a long pearl necklace!

    I'm hooked on this idea! xoxo e

    I agree with you on the brooches and was looking for one to adorn my winter coat. I was going to get my Mom one and she said I was aging her and I told her that even the young girls are wearing them… hee hee. xo

  43. I have always loved the look of brooches and sometimes even wear them myself. There is a book ou there that chronicles Madeleine Albright's famous pins that is a delight to read…can find it on Amazon. You might enjoy all the lovely pics and stories behind her pins.
