New Looks for Brooches

Brooch, broach, it what you will. This piece of vintage jewelry has been popular through the ages and is a very sought after accessory right now.

They used to be worn on a knit sweater, but lovers of this piece of jewelry have discovered all sorts of new ways to wear them now.

Do you have a plunging neckline on your favorite party dress? Pop a rhinestone pin in the cleavage for a breathtaking effect. Have a simple jacket that you wear to work? Add a brooch to the lapel to dress it up for evening.

Here is a cute idea I saw when shopping the other day: one lady had a vintage brooch on a soft fabric purse. My daughter puts pins on her wide belts and they look very trendy.

You can take a piece of soft fabric and tie it as a belt and add the brooch to the knot area to make a wonderful 3D belt. Tie up your favority big scarf and put the pin on the shoulder area to draw attention to the face area. There are so many possibilities. Let your imagination run wild.

If you are not a dress up type of gal try adding several pins to a jean jacket. Be creative!

Vintage Jewelry Lane has a wide choice of brooches and pins from all eras. The pin I've shown today is one called "Fashion Splendor" from the Sarah Coventry Collection. It is from the early 1970s and is in wonderful condition.

The site has of Rhinestones pins, designer brooches from popular designers such as Sarah Coventry, Weiss, BSK, Eisenburg, Art, etc, even Italian Micro Mosaic pins and Cameos. There is something for all tastes.
