Brooches have been around for ages; since 800 BC, people already used a Fibula, also referred to as a brooch or cloak pin, to hold loose pieces of clothing together.
Clever, contemporary women wear brooches and pins in various ways. They can be displayed on: bold jumpers, fragile blouses, seductive gowns/dresses, smart coats with lapels, capricious hats, belts, necklaces and ribbons to put in your hair. They can also be used to drape a scarf/stole/cape around the neck. A brooch inspires creativity and it adds that extra touch to an outfit! It is not uncommon that a brooch is used as a pendant to hang from a chain. This makes it possible to also wear the brooch as a necklace.
Brooches are available in many shapes and sizes: angular, round or oval. These classic brooches either have a copper (nickel-free) or Sterling silver base and they can also be gold-plated. Possible themes and subjects of the brooche are: nature, animals or more abstract subjects. Flowers, women’s heads, trees, bows and angels, decorated with Swaroski crystals or pearls are commonly seen in this type of jewellery. There is a large selection to choose from. Some brooches are also suitable for young girls.
