Brooches & Stick Pins

Brooches & Stick Pins

Historically brooches primarily served a functional purpose. While the shape and style of pins, brooches and fibulae varied, they were utilitarian by nature and served as fasteners for garments. From the Byzantines and Vikings to the Greeks and Romans, brooches and pins were often formed as functional symbols which reflected a particular heritage. Closer to home, from the eighth to the thirteenth Centuries the penannular brooch was perfected in Ireland, most aptly evidenced by the development of what has been named as the Tara brooch which was often beautifully enamelled and set with cabochon stones.

From the twentieth Century onwards, brooches and stick pins have been primarily worn as costume jewellery and were increasingly crafted from more expensive materials, featured more intricate designs and adorned with precious stones. We often sell beautiful examples of Victorian jewellery, as often exemplified by intricate Victorian mourning brooches and decorative bumblebee brooches, often with fine pearls or cabochon turquoise stones.
