With the Platinum Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II upon us, all eyes will once again be on the royal family, what they wear and their accessory jewellery. And, as has been the case throughout Her Majesty’s reign, you can be sure that brooches will be front and centre, both on her own outfits and that of other family members.
A signature style
As with much of Her Majesty’s jewellery, her brooches all have stories behind them – be they historic or personal. Whether a gift from her beloved Prince Philip, the late Duke of Edinburgh, or her late father George VI, or to mark special occasions during her reign, HM the Queen is never seen without a brooch. They are an integral part of her signature style – together with her three strand pearls.
It is a traditional finishing touch that is also embraced by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Katherine, Duchess of Cambridge, as well as other younger family members.
A brooch for every age and occasion
So, when people comment that brooches are for older people, that is certainly less true that it was many years ago. With the extensive choice of brooches – from classic to quirky, floral to animal, crystal to enamel – there is a brooch for every outfit and every occasion. And it is something that we pride ourselves on at Silver 54. We LOVE a brooch and have over 100 different styles to deliver the statement finish to any outfit.
In the spirit of the Platinum Jubilee, we have chosen several that are ‘Royalty’ themed. This beautiful Prince of Wales feathers brooch is gold and silver toned and set with an opulent amount of crystals – as befits its motif.
At the other end of the scale, we have Princess Kitty. Our feline friend is in silver tone metal, has a blue enamel crown and bow, and a body studded with crystals.
In homage to HM the Queen, our silver tone crystal encrusted knot brooch with a pearl centre is reminiscent of some of her more understated pieces – and at a fraction of the cost!
But, if fully Royal is not your thing, among our range are our flower brooches including Lilies, Daisies and Roses.
Our dog brooches always prove popular – with our terriers particularly in demand, as well as other dog breeds , such as pugs. Our nature based brooches include such as Ladybirds, Dragonflies and Bees, to name a few.
And for those who would rather not put a pin through an outfit or scarf, we also stock a range of magnetic brooches that are great for finer fabrics.
