Brooches began life as functional, utilitarian items that were used to secure pieces of clothing, like a loincloth. The first recorded brooches were made of thorns and flint, while pins crafted from metal date back to the bronze age.
Centuries later, there’s so much transition that the humble brooch has made. From being a utility item to now being treated as a fashion staple the brooch has seen it all. What once was considered to be a jewellery possession for women has today made its way into men’s wardrobes as well.
A journey that started in Jaipur’s Johri Bazar has today taken the fashion world by storm, burning ramps across fashion weeks. Birdichand Ghanshyam jewellers have been pioneers in fine jewellery. Through the years they’ve focused on craftsmanship, passion and artistic flair that reflect in every piece of jewellery that they create.
We pinned history to our pockets and took a walk down royal lanes of Jaipur in sheer Birdichand style.
Inspired by tombs and vintage coins, carved with polki, gold, diamonds and emeralds, this brooch adds the royal touch to your suit, creating a statement every time you walk into a boardroom
