Let's Get Pinned!

Jewelry, like everything else in the fashion world is cyclical.  With statement bib necklaces and knuckle dusting cocktail rings having run their course for quite some time now, it won't be long before brooches have their moment in the spotlight again.  Fortunately, there are amazing examples at every price point.  These beauties range from $36.00 on up to six figures!  Can you tell which is which?

  6. The owl is so beautiful; and he looks like he has a real expression on his face! Amazing.
    The feather one is my favorite!! :)
    Is the first one the most expensive? That's my guess.

  7. I completely agree that broaches are about to have their hay day. They are a long forgotten accessory that you can really do a lot with. I can't wait to get back home and raid my grandma's jewelry box for some old classics :)

  14. These are fab. I have a few vintage ones that I picked up at the Puce de Vanves a few years back and love wearing them as a little bit of unexpected sparkle - especially with a simple pair of jeans, a white T and black jacket...
    Have lovely day!

  16. I've always loved pins - my grandmother had a huge collection of beauties and I used to love looking at them in her jewelry box. They make even the most casual outfit look chic! :)

  22. Gorgeous! I need to get into pins. I cannot tell the difference between expensive and Target jewelry. I'm the worst at that!

  23. All stunning but I'm one of those odd women who feels out of sorts when wearing jewellery.

  40. I have always loved the look of brooches and sometimes even wear them myself. There is a book ou there that chronicles Madeleine Albright's famous pins that is a delight to read...can find it on Amazon. You might enjoy all the lovely pics and stories behind her pins.
