Brooches were designed to perform a simple function --to hold things together. Over the years, however, practicality evolved into glamour. Vanity ruled! Because of their versatility, women used them casually on a sweater or formally on a velvet dress.

Brooches dazzled in mesmerizing rhinestones and crystals to brighten every outfit. Consequently, women collected a bunch of them.

However, when broken many of these goodies ended up in the bottom of jewelry boxes.

Remember our UP attitude!
