Antique Diamond Arrow Brooch
Are you lusting after a gorgeous antique brooch, but don’t want to make the investment because you can’t think of multiple ways to wear it? Flaming hearts, diamonds skulls, sparkling flowers, and arrows in all shapes and sizes are among the favorites. Are you getting married, but want to be able to wear the veil pin or sash brooch after the wedding? If you’ve passed up some great pieces because you didn’t think you would get much wear out of them, the following is for you!
On the Front Pocket of Your Jeans
It may sound a bit strange, but it looks great. Pin one flower in the center, a group of three small flowers clustered together, or an arrow brooch or two. As long as the pins are the right size for the area and look good together, anything can work.
Back to Basics – On a Black Blazer
Think about pinning three diamond or paste swallows, one slightly smaller than the next, up the front shoulder of a boyfriend blazer. You could also try multiple gem-set arrows, up and down the lapel of a black fitted blazer pointing in various directions. Just add a white v-neck t-shirt and some black, pointed-toe heels.
Off to the Side
Do you have a dress that knots at the side or a top that has a focus point at the waist, why not pin your favorite sparkling piece in the center? We’ve taken our arrow and pinned it diagonally through the center of this peplum bustier. Here’s another great example, a black dress with a knot that is perfect for pinning, from AllSaints.
On Our Re-Pinnable Black Stingray Bracelet Cuff
If you are like us, you like to get a lot of different looks out of your jewelry and wear it in different ways. This soft black cuff made from stingray, allows you to pin your brooch to the cuff, wear it as a bracelet, and remove the brooch/pin when you want to wear it on something else.
