The brooch is back?
According to the New York Times, "The Brooch is Back, Baby". Younger generations may have never even heard of a jewelry brooch which was more synonymous with "old lady jewelry" of yesteryear.
Not anymore says the NYT...
"Widely considered stodgy and trite, brooches have been seriously out of fashion ever since the power-suit-ridden “Dynasty” years. Grandmothers have drawers full of them. Catherine O’Hara, playing the loony Moira Rose on “Schitt’s Creek,” wears them incessantly — even when going to bed.
Jewelers rarely list them on their e-commerce shopping menus (though they do sell them). And from the 1950s through the ’80s, they acquired a reputation “as daytime, luncheon jewels,” Marion Fasel, a fine jewelry historian, said. Who, if anyone, has lunched since the ’80s?"
Apparently that is all changing. The article discusses it's not only famous women such as Lady Gaga that are making the brooch cool again, but numerous male actors as well.
