I love the look of a beautiful brooch on a jacket lapel. They don't seem to be as fashionable as they once were, for I don't see many women wearing them. But I like them and have a good size collection. The silver metal brooch above was one I inherited from Ruth, a family friend. I think it's from the 1930's. And the leaf brooch below belonged to her as well.
The sterling silver Charles Rennie Macintosh style brooch below, I purchased on a trip to Japan and it is one of my favorites. Are there any other brooch collectors out there besides me?
