Brooches Are Back?

Our favorite new freebie paper, Trending NY, just jumped on the “brooches are back” bandwagon. 

Will this trend finally come true?? We certainly hope so. So many wonderful brooches, pins and dress clips exist in the vintage market, just waiting to become the finishing touch on everything from a winter jacket to a wedding dress.

Brooches were incredibly popular during the Art Deco era, and Sotheby’s New York has some stunning pieces at this month’s Important Jewels sale. This impressive Cartier jewel has definitely caught our eye:

Platinum, diamond, rock crystal and onyx brooch.  Cartier, France. Estimate $20,000 - $30,000.

Of course, we have a few great Art Deco examples in our own collection as well:

Crafted in elegant geometric patterns in glittering gems and precious metals, our Deco brooches are anything but old-fashioned. What a fun new (old) trend!
