Silver Brooch

If you have ever gone through your mother’s wardrobe from old days, chances are that you will find a brooch or two. Brooches used to be common wardrobe staples back in the earlier days. Although not seen very frequently these days, brooches are sort of covert accessories that can spark up any kind of outfit.

Brooches are versatile pieces of jewelry. More commonly seen on jacket lapels, the use of brooches as accessory extends from the jackets to sweaters, hats, shawls, scarves tops and dresses. They can even be pinned to simple pearl necklaces for a glamorous touch. Silver brooches particularly look great with monotone color schemes, and will perk up a black dress or a solid-colored top instantly.

Brooches can come in various shapes, designs and sizes, and can be made of many metals such as gold, platinum or silver. Silver brooches are amongst the most beautiful and sought after brooches out there. Silver brooches are usually made of 92% to 95% of silver combined with pure copper. Silver is too soft to exist as jewelry on its own, so therefore other metals are alloyed with it to create silver accessories. Silver is considered ‘sterling’ when a piece of jewelry contains 92.5% silver in the making. Sterling silver ornaments and brooches look great and elegant with any kind of outfit or clothing.

Silver brooches can be found in a number of different designs. Pearls and crystals go well with silver brooches to create astonishing designs. Silver brooches offer an array of patterns – hearts, clovers, butterflies, dogs, owls, snails or even turtles – you name it and it can be found.  Whether you are more feminine and like delicate flower or petal designs, or want to go bold with colorful gems on silver, there’s definitely a silver brooch that can cater to your taste. Silver brooches can be worn in several occasions. For example, in Christmas, a silver Christmas tree or a miniature Santa’s reindeer sleigh will go really well with a single colored jacket, cardigan, or scarf. For official events or important meetings, an elegant flower sterling brooch such as ‘Tiger lily’ ($45.99), ‘Regal orchid’ ($37.49) or ‘Silver tulip’ by Yuli, can look really great with a pantsuit or pencil skirts.
