Vintage brooches and Madeleine Albright
SELECTION 58 FACETTES
Htribute to Madeleine Albright, the first female Secretary of State of the United States and her passion for brooches. This woman of character indeed used brooches as real messengers, as can be discovered in the book “Read My Pins”. So much so that her counterparts carefully scrutinized the brooch she wore in their presence. They also became diplomatic gifts...
Today, as announced by fashion magazines, it's the return of the brooch!
Our selection of vintage brooches
To stick to the last century, the brooch is originally a trendy piece of the 20s, during the Art Deco period. It is known as a sign of wealth, the perfect decorative jewel to dress up an elegant outfit.
Later in the 80s, they were brought back into the limelight in an imposing fashion thanks to Thierry Mugler, Chanel, Versace, Christian Lacroix and Yves Saint Laurent… but became discreet from the 90s.
100 years after the start of the Roaring Twenties, these famous pieces of jewelry, each with its own different design, whether discreet or sophisticated, with pearls or diamonds, have been making a comeback for a few seasons now.
We find them in luxury houses such as in the Louis Vuitton 2022 cruise collection, at Saint Laurent, and Gucci, but also on our favorite stars such as Kate Middleton, Lady Gaga, Jared Leto or the famous couple Beyoncé and Jay Z during Tiffany & Co.'s About Love campaign. So let's get to the origins of these trends, and take your pick from vintage and second-hand brooches of all styles.
Also find all of our selection of used spindles.
