A Guide to Brooches

Are brooches back in style?

Brooches are back in style despite once being regarded as old-fashioned. Brooches have a rich and unique history dating back to the bronze age. The British royal family, particularly the late Queen, has an extensive and exquisite collection of brooches - Queen Elizabeth II was rarely seen in public without a brooch on her lapel!

Recently, brooches have been spotted on the runways of Loewe, Givenchy, Chanel and Oscar de La Renta and have been featured in the latest collection of designers such as Saint Laurent and Miu Miu.

Often seen as a niche accessory, brooches are set to re-emerge as a classic and innovative symbol of luxury craftsmanship.

A Transformative Quality

The unique quality of Cassandra Goad brooches is their ability to be worn in a plethora of different ways. All Cassandra Goad brooches can be worn as a brooch or as a necklace pendant. Cassandra can also create a pearl choker which your brooch can sit within.

Brooches, due to their transformative qualities, require highly skilled and knowledgeable craftsmen to create. Cassandra’s exquisite attention to detail combined with her extensive knowledge of traditional jewellery-making techniques ensures that a Cassandra Goad brooch is a true work of art.
