After bingeing season 4 of The Crown, I’ve had brooches on the brain. HRH wore a spectacular sapphire and diamond beauty yesterday for her 73rd wedding anniversary. My mother gave me a few, but I still haven’t worn them — pinned to my chest is not ideal. However, the three images above have inspired me to play around with them a bit. Miuccia Prada below loves a good brooch and wears them often and well.
