Shiny Shimmering Brooches

My mom had quite a few and I have always associated them as being quite old fashioned. But I have been seeing a lot of them lately and they have become more than just an adornment that sits on your lapel.

I love them shiny and sparkly. But I have to admit, they're more suitable to a bridal gown, so wear them with care.
