One Brooch Necklace

I don't know when I started having a thing for vintage brooches, but over the past few years, whenever I go to a great consignment sale, or a fantastic church rummage sale like I did this past weekend, I always look for cute big brooches. Some may have a little bit of whimsy, and some may have a ton of sparkle! But the reason why I look for them is I attach just one to an old vintage gold chain and just attach it so it hangs down.

My original brooch that inspired them all!

New addition! Cost: $2

New addition! Cost: $1
I've seen so many people (my lovely mother included!) find several vintage brooches and attach them together and form a big statement necklace. I'd LOVE to do that once I find enough, but for now, I think these simple one brooch necklaces suit me. They add a great amount of pop to an outfit or just simply float along as a great companion piece. (I can just envision that new black pearl with a LBD! Ahh love it!). What do you think? Would you do it?

Happy Mid Week!


  1. This is such a great idea! I love the first one with the green stones. I may need to go on a little brooch hunt :) After my spending freeze is over of course...

  2. I love a brooch necklace! So classic and chic! I can't believe that brooch was only $1! Incredible! I also love it that your mom wears a bunch together, I wish I had a few to wear together, sounds like I need to start brooch hunting!

  3. What a great idea. I have so many pins I inhierted and never thought to hang them from a necklace. Thanks for the inpiration!

  4. I love this idea. I have been searching through family jewelry that I received for some vintage brooches so I could do this, but so far no luck. xo


Thanks for your sweet comments! They make my day and I appreciate every one!
