I love a brooch, and I love a bit of bling. Make it retro- and I’m there. Here are six 50s costume brooches from a ladies collection of quite a few- I choose ones that appealed in a specific colour/form/50s representational kind of way. And that would look good together- one might be tempted to wear more than one at once!
All of the brooches are in exceptional condition – they have been well looked after and look like they were made yesterday [except for, you know, the 50s styling.]
I would love to keep and wear all these brooches [maybe 3 or 4 at once…] but alas my cupboard overfloweth with retro brooches and it is a shame that they aren’t been worn by rockabillies and other 50s aficionados. If you like stylish 40s-50s brooches, check out my previous posts on this fascinating subject [and see what I mean about an abundance of brooches.]
Further to my last post featuring 50s earrings, here is my collection of 50s brooches. I have already confessed to a love of green costume jewellery and you can see that that colour features in this collection also.
I collected these brooches from all over the place- one by one, and now there is a little collection I thought I’d offer them for sale. For people who love to use one or two retro pieces in their daily ensemble- or for people who dress entirely in the 50s, this collection would be a useful addition to the wardrobe. And how well would they go with those earrings!
