These days, brooches are big—literally. Magnificent pins, crafted in a variety of shapes and jewels, are sure to steal the show from lesser baubles. Take Mish Tworkowski’s opulent golden pagoda, encrusted with 85 carats of white topaz and sapphire. Mirroring the legendary towers of the Far East, this gleaming treasure exudes old-world elegance. Elsewhere, Katey Brunini and Stefan Hemmerle look to nature for inspiration. While Brunini plays diverse textures against one another with a quintessentially soft wild orchid made of bone, South Sea pearl and diamonds, Hemmerle proffers a dramatic dragonfly, bedecked with pale green garnet wings and chrysoberyl eyes, that he hopes will appeal to the fairy-tale side of every woman.
