A brooch (also called a pin or clasp) was known as a "fibula" in ancient Greek and Roman times. Shaped somewhat like large safety pins, fibulae were used to secure articles of clothing. Today brooches are decorative items fashioned from metal, usually gold or sterling silver, and are frequently designed with enamel accents or precious gemstones. They can be strictly ornamental (and are sometimes even worn as hair ornaments!), or can also have the practical function of fastening clothing. At Viridian Gold, we offer a variety of styles in both 14K gold and sterling. A customer favorite is our Fleur-de-Lis Brooch #6012, shown at the left.
