The Brooch is Back!

From the runways of New York to Paris, major fashions houses have announced the newest trend for fall – The Brooch.  Those of us who love vintage have one question,  “What took you so long?”  

One of the most versatile pieces in a woman’s jewelry arsenal, the brooch does it all.  Whether adorning the suit of a buttoned-up Wall Streeter, the scarf of a downtown hipster or hanging from the pearls of a cocktail partier, the brooch is the one piece of jewelry that works for every occasion and every season.   This year the brooch is big, bold and glam and the Got Vintage team has just the right pieces at hundreds less than the runway. 

Bold & Beautiful Butterfly - $135.00

GVS team member Rhinestones Past is right in style with the bug brooches of both Alex Bittar and Oscar De La Renta with this gorgeous Butterfly brooch made with pave, clear rhinestones and amber yellow colored oval faceted glass.

Another buggy option is this this bright and beautiful dragonfly from Camano IslandVintage.

Two of this season's hottest colors are deep russet, and amber. This brushed gold and rhinestone Sarah Coventry brooch at The Eclectic Diva absolutely captures a look by Marni.

From The Eclectic Diva - $23.00

Starburst Rhinestone - $39.00

Beautiful dark blues are also on trend and this starburst rhinestone beauty offered at Ultimate Adornment features fabulous blue rhinestone navettes and is a whopping 3” in diameter.  It's also reminiscent of a piece in the fall collection of Jose & Maria Barrera featured at Bergdorf Goodman.  

Gilt Goldtone & Faux Pearl - $40.00

Gold is always in season and this high impact piece in gilt and faux pearls from Buy Vintage Jewelry will really turn heads.

Other great gold choices are these modernist beauties from Cousins Antiques and Madge’s Hatbox.

Square Modernist Dimensional Pin Brooch - $10.00
Goldtone & Multi-colored Glass Modernist Abstract Brooch - $25.00
