Brooches & Pins

As exquisite works of art, brooches and pins bring elegance and style to any ensemble and are the perfect way to showcase your personality. Adding a touch of interest to classic looks, brooches and pins complement other accessories including earrings and bracelets. They feature elegant or playful designs and are always in fashion. The antique and vintage brooches are suitable for wearing on jackets, hats, collars, and even your hair and feature classic cameos, gem flowers, and whimsical animals. A variety of brooches can be found on Bidsquare such as diamante brooches, floral pins, and butterfly pins. There are a wide variety of shapes and sizes of precious or semi-precious stones included in glitzy pins.

Since their introduction in ancient times for practical reasons, the vintage and antique brooches and pins have evolved from keeping garments of clothing in place into a symbol of luxury. As these brooches were encrusted with precious jewels, these pieces become a symbol of wealth and status, and they were used as an ornament for personal adornment and decoration in the medieval era. Their styles and designs varied according to the evolution of various art movements and fashion trends. The Victorian era (1837-1901) saw the influence of naturalism, and brooches and pins were usually made of silver or yellow gold and featured birds, flowers, and leaves.

The Impressionism movement of the Art Nouveau (1890-1910) period encouraged designers to emphasize expressing nature in an emotional way. During the Art Nouveau period, iris, water lily, trailing vine, and orchid were some of the popular motifs represented on brooches and pins. It was crafted in the form of bright color enamel, asymmetry, and elegant motifs with expert craftsmanship and the finest quality. In contrast, in the contemporary world brooches and pins can be found on sale in a wide range of designs, crafted with precious metals, fine enamel, craving, and gemstones like Jade Brooch. Considering the versatility of brooches and pins on online auction platforms, they can be styled on scarves, overcoats, sashes, hats, belts, and gowns.
