Beyond the Trend: Brooches

START

As versatile as a bauble can be and as functional as brooches are, they seem to come in and out of favor with the currents of fashion trends. The adornment’s origins can be linked back to the Bronze Age (2000-500 BC) with the adoption of metal as a common resource. Early societies such as the Greeks, Romans, and Celts found ways to secure and clasp their clothing together, introducing early forms of the decorative brooch. Often thought to have royal significance, the brooch was largely reserved for the upper classes who could afford luxury jewels. Tiffany’s and Cartier began producing the artful badges in the 1920s and ‘30s, but other costume jewelry brands did, too. Now completely democratized, the brooch can bring an unsuspected character and a voice to an otherwise muted ensemble. With men and women adorning the pieces on jacket lapels, hats, dresses, and even in hair, the brooch has found its way back onto the runways and red carpets, and back into style.
