Why People Love Brooches


When people think about new jewellery, they often gravitate towards rings, necklaces or earrings. However, for a truly unique way of accessorising your outfit, why not consider brooches? They’ve been worn for centuries, even dating back to medieval times. But now, rather than being a symbol, brooches are a real fashion statement.

What types of brooches can you buy?

There are so many types of brooches available that it would be impossible to list them all. Ultimately, it depends on the type of outfit you want to pair it with. For a more casual look, many people favour brooches in a floral design. These stand out well on solid colour outfits, rather than floral summer dresses and the like. This is because they can get lost in other floral patterns.

However, there are certainly more luxurious examples on the market. Some of the most indulgent ones have a vintage style, inspired by eras of the past and featuring beautiful diamonds and other stones. Really, the choice is yours, from the cheap and casual brooch accessories to something truly glamorous. So, why do people love them so much?

Brooches have a vintage style

Some people consider brooches to be an old style of jewellery. In many ways they’d be right, but that doesn’t mean they’re are unappealing. It’s quite the opposite in fact, because vintage and retro style is always popular. If you enjoy dressing with a little class, vintage accessories are always a great addition.

They give you a unique look

Firstly, they’re considered a bit more unique these days. While many people favour earrings or necklaces as statement pieces, brooches give you a point of difference. They create a whole new look, and since they’re not the most popular accessory out there, you might be the only one at the part wearing one! So, if you like to catch people’s attention, choosing a beautiful brooch may be just the way to do it.


Finally, there’s not many jewellery accessories quite as versatile as brooches. For one thing, you can wear them wherever you like. There’s no right or wrong way to wear one, you simply add it to your outfit wherever you think it will have the most impact. They’re very personal in that way. Plus, they go with almost any outfit, and they’re always eye-catching. For a piece of jewellery you can wear at your discretion, brooches make a great choice!
