As I have I mentioned, I think that good jewelry design creates a beautiful item that is worn on the body and that it is not necessarily about it’s interaction with clothing. Because of that, brooches and pins tend to fall off of my radar — those are things that your clothes wear. Sometimes, though, a piece is just so well done that it must be mentioned.
This is the Quatre Cinq Silver Brooch by Dorothy Cheng, which is currently posted on Etsy.
Worn by a sweater or worn by a person — Who cares? It is drop-dead gorgeous. It strikes the perfect balance of clean design, inspired architectural touches, well-considered scale, and attention to detail that makes a perfect piece. I can see it with a dress, with a jacket, anything.
Thank you, Dorothy Cheng, for turning my head with a brooch.
