Pins vs. Brooches

Pins and brooches are an excellent way to accessorize yourself. They are always in fashion, and they add elegance and style to complete your final look.

Diamond pins and brooches are an enduring and elegant complement to a jewelry collection. They can be worn on clothes, hats, coats, jackets, collars, and even on your hair. They also feature different designs, from flower designs to different combinations of shapes, and up to whimsical animals.

Brooches and pins became known during the Bronze age when metal pins became popular, and Celts started wearing pins as cloak fasteners. During Viking times, men and women wore brooches with intricate designs daily. Brooches and pins weren’t originally created as jewelries, they were made to serve as functional item during those times.

Today, brooches and pins are mostly used as a fashion item. Big fashion industries like Chanel and Boucheron have included them in their collection. Brooches and pins have become an essential part of anyone’s wardrobe. Getting yourself a good collection will help you be prepared for any occasion.

Pins and Brooches Differences

There really isn’t much of a difference between brooches and pins. Both are used interchangeably in the fashion world. While most people call them pins nowadays, there are still people, especially estate-and-antique jewelry lovers, who call them brooches.

Brooch: is a fashion decorative accessory for women that usually attaches to clothes or garments worn on the upper body with a rotating pin clasp.

  • Brooch is “to adorn as with a brooch”
  • Brooches come in different designs and are made from different materials, including diamonds, Swarovski crystals, feathers, plastic stones, sea shells, pearls and pearl imitations.
  • Bronze, copper, pewter, steel and silver are used to make brooches’ base or be the only ingredient in the brooch design.
  • In the older days brooches were used to hold clothing together.
  • You can wear your brooch in your hair if you wish to add sparkle and style. Simply attach a brooch to a plain ponytail holder and tie up your hair as you normally would.
  • Brooches are decorative pieces of jewelry that attached to clothing with a sharpened metal or a pin. Brooch is a specific type of pins, and pins is the general category for such pieces of jewelry. Therefore, all brooches are pins, but not all pins are brooches.

Pin: is made out of sharpened steel-wire on the end, and flattened or rounded on the other. Usually, pins attach with a small sharpened rod and push-on safety clasp, but there are some that use rotating rod with a clasp.

  • Pin is “to fasten or attach with a pin”
  • Pins, commonly used term of today’s fashion brooches and pins.
  • Many pins are also made to wear as pendants. Even if yours is not made that way, sometimes you can get it to hang on a chain or ribbon.
  • Pins also have different designs on the flattened or rounded end of it. Some pins have flower designs, others have fancy shapes to complement or to add more beauty on the clothing.
  • Pins are mostly use to hold the clothing together. Put a piece of felt behind the fabric and pin through both layers to give the pin stability.
  • If you are wearing a bandana around your head, you can add pins with cute designs to add more beauty on it.
