New Life For Vintage Brooches

It was not all that long ago that brooches were relegated to be worn on the shoulder or if small, on the lapel. In today’s world as the brooch makes a comeback, the rules have changed.

Whether you love the sparkle and fire of rhinestones or the colorful world of enamel; the small petite pin or the over sized statement brooch; the playful pin or the Victorian look, there are new ways to wear all of them. In fact the imagination is the only limit to how to wear your favorite brooch.

Scarves offer a perfect field for a playful brooch
