History of Brooches (Pins)
Brooches (Pins) were created from the fibula, a decorative pin used by the Greeks and Romans. The Romans, Greeks and Celtics and other tribes throughout Europe used the fibula as a way to hold their cloaks closed.
Brooches (Pins) are fancy pins that over the centuries were made out of precious and semi-precious gemstones, as well as, other materials such as: rhinestones and faux pearls. Fashion icons like Coco Chanel (Chanel) made brooches (pins) more popular during the early 1920s on. Brooches (Pins) come in all shapes and styles including, animals, flowers and geometric designs. My favorite styles date back to the 1920s to the 1950s.
Brooches are great gifts, because unlike other costume and fine jewelry there are not any size limitations like with a bracelet, necklace or ring.
