It's not that brooches are new. This winter though, pins and charm brooches have become a punctuation point.
There is nothing shy about the size of the new brooches. Bigger is definitely better.
This arrangement, of course, is for the adventurous. But a woman with a special knack -- and the right brooches -- could wear a cluster of them placed strategically around the collarbone area of a jacket or a dress.
Multiple brooches though should have some vague relationship, like flower shapes. (Flowers are big right now in costume jewellery.)
A word of advice: Keep other accessories minimal.
Eliminate the necklace or wear only a simple one, and earrings should not be too dominant.
Diamante studded jewellery has become the very recent fashion statement. Organic stone to a semi precious stone, every gem stone is finding its place in the production of the jewellery items. Be it a gold-plated hoop earring with a tiny dangling diamond, or a necklace with an emerald studded pendant, or a ring with a large ruby; stones are making their come back as the essence of fashion zest. One stone piece jewellery has some how obtained a classic look. But the recent trend is to mix and match a whole array of different gem stones on a single piece of jewellery.
