What is a brooch that is said to be vintage?

This is a quick coffee break guide to what is a brooch that is vintage?
So to be an original and genuine vintage is to do with its age rather than its good looks. It can either have been produced between the 1920s to the 1990s, or be at least 20 to 25 years old. Not an easy thing to distinguish as there are many brooches on the market, with many of them not being vintage at all but new ones in the style of a vintage brooch and pin. Any piece of jewellery that was made between the Art Deco years of the 1920s and 1930s right up to the last decade of the twenty first century. Is said to be true and real vintage. It is actually easier to look at decades rather than splitting it up into years. Because dating can be difficult - unless you have an advert dated or a brochure or company catalogue.   

We have many original vintage brooches available on Jewels and Finery. Here are just a few:

There are many different styles of brooches and the above are just a small selection that we have. Along with antique, modern and small brooch pins available.

I preserve the past. Researching family and local history. Finding about mine and other people's ancestors, is just one of my passions. I also love vintage costume jewellery made here in the UK. I write about my finds and like to research.
