We have bead brooches and other colours mixed with the black colour ways. The above faceted bead brooch is quite large and just shimmers with the black facets and crystal glass beads.

From elegant simple designs like this bar brooch to larger complex ones.

Victorian style brooch

Black brooches are traditionally associated with memorial jewellery as well as Gothic modern jewellery. The brooch above is in a Victorian memorial style dating to the 1980s - 1990s.

It can also be seen in love brooches such as this black cats one.
We add at least 30 to 50 different pieces of jewellery each week, so there is always something new to see.
