Brooches. Change The Look Of An Outfit In An Instant.
The Greeks and Romans used brooches to secure their tunics, cloaks and dresses. Victorian and Edwardian ladies wore them as the finishing touch to their elaborate jackets and high-necked, lace blouses. And the geometric designs of the Art Deco period, coupled with the introduction of costume jewellery, raised brooches to an art form that virtually everyone could afford. In this section MAJ brings you a diverse collection of costume jewellery brooches that includes Vintage pieces dating back to the 1950s. Big, bold Swarovski crystal flowers and animals - which are proving extremely popular for weddings, proms and parties. A dazzling selection of Diamante - or rhinestone - brooches. Plus a small, select range of 925 Sterling Silver and Marcasite brooches. Of all the various types of costume jewellery on the website, it has to be said that brooches are the number one choice to give as a gift, especially when gift-wrapped in red or black velvet box.
