RayRay posted a link in another Hangout thread (the Megxit thread) that I followed. Since I had been following this thread as well, I thought I would share this snippet from senior sales director Omar Vaja of Bentley & Skinner here.


"The royal-inspired trend Vaja is most excited about? Surprisingly, it's the brooch, which is currently enjoying a comeback among younger women.

'People are more interested in the brooch," he says. "The queen wears quite a lot of brooches. There's a good trend now of younger people wearing brooches. And it's great, you know, it's so lovely seeing a blazer and a nice brooch. And this is a time when you can wear diamonds during the day, when it's in a brooch, and that's not considered vulgar—whereas drop earrings or a huge bracelet would be'."

I’m glad to see the brooch making a comeback, but strongly disagree with ‘drop earrings or a huge bracelet would be‘ vulgar during the daytime.
Indeed. Fashions change. Many of us now wear our diamonds before dark. One need only peruse the Pricescope threads on what jewelry different women happen to have on during a given day to see that we tend to wear our diamonds in many ways during the daytime.

Thanks @AGBF, @JPie
I rarely see other women wearing pins. I always have one on my coat or jacket. In warm weather, I wear the lighter ones on summer shirts.
I would love to see a brooch trend hit the streets, not just the runway.

Thanks @AGBF !
I get compliments on them, but often have to explain what they are!

Don't disappear into everyone else, aka style.

Ignore "style" and wear whatever you like.
Fantastic advice and never truer words spoken


Contrary to that note blokes are wearing brooches now Kenny, think you would wear one
Ive always liked tie pins and cufflinks and lapel pins

@JPie That is really just a stunning pin. I wish there was a way you could convert that into a cuff or bracelet where you could look at it all the time.

I have a thing for brooches. I am always looking at them on Lang's site. I still miss the bow that I passed up on, and it was gone in no time. So sad.

I think this would make a gorgeous hair clip. But I would never wear it...

I’m one of the daily brooch wearers. I work in a formal office environment and I always have a brooch on my jacket or work dress. I think I’m the only person in my company who does and people always remark on it, it’s become something of a trademark of mine.

I would give my eye teeth for that little lizard. He is so so cute. The way he looks like he has just been startled by something. Absolutely amazing workmanship. Did you find these or commission them?

Thanks! I would be scared to wear it as a bracelet. It’s well-made but the fact that the feather is formed from multiple segments that move make me nervous about snagging it on something and breaking it.

Do you have a pic of the one that hit away?

That Art Deco brooch would make one fancy hair clip!

I forgot that it moves. Yes. It would be a shame to make it stationary.
Here is a pic. I loved that it was small.
