These days, not a lot of people talk about diamond brooches as a fashion statement. A brooch is that thing your grandma wears or has tucked away in the closet in some heirloom box. However, a diamond brooch can actually be a really special fashion statement, especially if it does have sentimental value. If a relative does give you a diamond brooch, there is a lot you can do with it. The best part is that brooches are coming back in style – not only on the runway, but also out on the street. Here are some ways to incorporate a diamond or gemstone brooch into your personal style.
Spruce Up A Drab Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is just a denim jacket until you add a little magic to it. Sure, denim jackets are everywhere, so you want to find a way to make the jacket your own. The best way to do this is with a brooch. Simply pinning a brooch over the pocket of the denim jacket will turn the denim jacket into a serious fashion statement. Depending on the bling factor, you can wear that denim jacket over a nice dress if you are heading to a fancy event.
Make Your Evening Attire Sparkle
Speaking of making your evening attire stand out – the best way to make your gown or outfit standout is to put a brooch over the strap or somewhere on the item of clothing you are wearing. If you are wearing a little black dress, a brooch can add a little special detail that will make your outfit so much more fashionable. You may want to place a brooch featuring your favorite animal or fruit. Depending on the season, you can wear a certain color brooch, like bright yellow in the summer and something a little more toned down in the winter.
Use A Brooch As A Clasp
If your shirt, dress or another item of clothing is missing a clasp in the back or front, you can always use a brooch to hold things together. If your brooch has a little pin mechanism, it can serve as a removable clasp. Not only will your brooch have a practical application, it will also be fashionable. You could also add multiple brooches to the strap of your dress, so that it doesn’t look like you needed a brooch just to hold things up.
Refashion Or Modernize Your Brooch
If you were given a diamond brooch by a relative and it is missing a few diamonds or gemstones, you may want to think about adding some new stones. You can add some beautiful loose diamonds to a brooch if you want to make it come to life. Even if you get a brooch that has diamonds that aren’t real, you may want to remove those faux diamonds and add ones that are real. All you need is a professional jeweler and your diamond brooch could come back to life. In the end, not only do you have something with sentimental meaning – you are also adding your own touch.
