Jewellery favourites – Brooches

Everyone has a favourite style or type of jewellery – perhaps an item they wouldn’t ever want to be without or something they are always drawn to in jewellery displays. So we decided to ask some of the London Jewellery School team about their jewellery favourites, must haves and obsessions. We continue our series with web co-ordinator Rachel Goth’s choice.


Some of Rachel’s brooch collection

Recently I came across a Lea Stein fox brooch in a little boutique near Covent Garden and my interest in brooches was reignited. Now I’m collecting brooches again for the first time in a long while.

Brooches are often overlooked but I think if, like me, you like to keep your main jewellery understated then a brooch is a great piece to be more playful with. They come in such a wide variety from metal and sparkles to bright plastics and soft fabrics, that there’s something for everyone. So they’re perfect for brightening up a winter coat or giving detail to a summer jacket.

    I actually read this article yesterday and spoke to Rachel before my class last night. When I returned home I purchased two pieces by Lea Stein – one brooch and one belt buckle and then got chatting to a colleague who had first bought a piece 15 years old! Thank you for opening my eyes to her designs…my credit card might not be as thankful though 🙂
