When you follow the trend for this Winter, you definitely need a tiara and a brooch or pin in your jewel box. For me, a tiara is too much. I only follow a trend when it makes me look more beautiful. A brooch, on the other hand, is a different thing. I love them. They are practical, you wear them a lot and with this piece of jewelry, you know ‘how to decorate your shoulder in style’!
A brooch is as old as Rome and as new as a newborn baby
People in the past also call a brooch, in time, a pin, a lapel, or a fibula. All those items are used as clasps or fasteners to hold the clothing together. And from a functional adding to the garments, they become a decorative piece that men and women wear.
The ancient brooch is often a kind of the centerpiece of a jewelry set. They are made in a way that they use it as the pin we see today or as a pendant or part of a crown. But the common people use their brooches to fasten the two parts of their coat or shawl.
I hope that this blog post causes a trend in wearing brooches on your coat, shawl or sweater or maybe on your hat. The best is to pin it on a material that is not too fine, like silk.
