Brooches have a long standing history in the world of fashion. Originally used simply to hold clothes together, brooches eventually evolved into fashionable pendants and souvenirs. Brooches were often used as mementos, given to loved ones before they left for war. Queen Victoria was a big proponent of the brooch, wearing one for over 20 years to commemorate the loss of her husband, Prince Albert. Brooches come in a variety of forms, from rhinestone brooches to wedding brooches. Many brooches have floral designs, with gemstones attached to the pin. Mood's selection of brooches are perfect for pinning garments and embellishing style.
