How to Start a Brooch Collection

For years I have been buying up brooches just about every time I pass through a vintage shop. Whether it's something specific that I am looking for, or something that catches my eye... Brooches represent a decorative piece of art that are fun to collect and admire. I am sharing my favorite categories of brooches that I always keep an eye out for...

F L O W E R S

Florals are a very popular motif throughout vintage jewelry, and this is no exception for the brooch style! You can find giant daisies and feminine bouquets designed in various materials like metal, enamel and rhinestones. My favorite way to wear this style is to find a few different round florals and create a unique bouquet by clustering them together on a jacket lapel.

R H I N E S T O N E S

Rhinestone clusters were the first style of brooch I began to collect in high school. A classic style that adds a bit of sparkle to any outfit, the rhinestone cluster should be a staple in everyone's brooch collection. My favorite two ways to wear this style is dressed down pinned on a denim jacket, or dressed up pinned on the shoulder of a cocktail dress.

M O T I F S

Everyone has something they love to collect, and brooches lend themselves to fun and kitschy motifs. A few of the brooch motifs that I collect are: bows, crowns, insects, cats and poodles. There's something for everyone! My favorite way to wear this style is by grouping the small collections together, like a cluster of insects on a jacket lapel.

Double Drop Earrings

There is something so iconic about the 1960's and bauble drop earrings. Twiggy and other popular models were photographed wearing this statement earring style throughout the mod decade. Styled with a mini dress for a retro throwback or with an elegant cocktail dress for a more modern look, the double drop earring style still makes for a fun party statement.

Why You Need More Vintage Clip On Earrings

Wanting to add more vintage jewels to your collection but hate the idea of clip on earrings? You're not alone! I've grown to love the clip on earring style over the years, especially since my ear lobes are on the smaller side. Pierced statement earrings have always been way too heavy for me. If you are used to buying pierced earrings, there's a few things you should know before diving into the vintage costume jewelry world...

O N E

Most earrings made between the 1920's and the 1960's feature a screw back or clip on mechanism. In fact, pierced earrings did not become popular until the 1970's. This makes styles with a post back extremely rare to come across in the vintage jewelry market. I always keep my eye out for a good pair of vintage pierced earrings for this reason alone!

T W O

The clip on style was especially popular during the 1980's when anything bold and gold was in style. Most of the oversized silhouettes from this decade would be far to heavy for pierced ears. Chanel is no exception to the rule, most of their vintage gold plated earrings from the 1980's to the 1990's are clip ons as well.

T H R E E

Another popular vintage earring style was the ear climber, known for their curved crescent moon silhouette. Ear climbers became a fashionable statement during the 1960's, mostly fabricated with rhinestones, lucite and plastic florals. Clip ons allow this style to wrap up the outside of the ear starting at the lobe.

How to Display Your Vintage Jewelry

Collecting jewelry is such a passion of mine, it would be a shame to keep everything hidden inside my dresser drawers. Instead, I love to display my favorite finds on top of my dressing table in vintage boxes and vintage bowls. I found this adorable two tiered gold cookie tray while thrifting in Dallas a few years ago, perfect for displaying my baubles.
I always come across a cookie tray or two at antique malls, but I have spotted them online as well...
Love these vintage trays that I found on Etsy here, here and here.

How to Store Your Vintage Jewelry


After moving into our new San Francisco apartment, I finally had the opportunity (and the space!) to display a few of my favorite collected jewels and accessories. After tucking everything away for so many years in my tiny Manhattan studio, it is so nice to have a space where I can be reminded of my fondest vintage shopping memories. I found these Pottery Barn Antique Gold Jewelry Boxes to keep my jewelry and sunglasses where I would still be able to see them while keeping everything dust free. Next up on my SF home tour will be my dresser!
