Brooches are classic pieces that can add a bit of old-fashioned charm to any style. The use of brooches can be traced to the Roman Empire, when they kept one’s clothes fastened. These days, a brooch is all about style. Pinned to clothing, a gold brooch like Eina Ahluwalia’s handcrafted Heart of Gold brooch features delicately crafted details and is inspired by what Eina calls “the Forgotten Jewel,” or the light in each of us.
