We have always known why figural jewelry (also sometimes called ‘fanciful’)  is popular. It is fun-loving jewelry, captures the imagination, and it is everywhere! It is artistic, timeless, and appeals to any budget. Have you seen the latest must-have accessory on the runway? It’s figural jewelry. Brooches of all kinds. You don’t have to take our word for it, you can take Alexander McQueen’s. This runway look was spotted at the 2016 Resort Cruise Pre-Spring Fashion Show.

We love the look above but you don’t have to be lavish about it. You can choose to wear an elaborate and colorful item of figural jewelry (and lots of it) or a simple and quiet one. It is great to be able to shake up bold or subtle accessories depending on your mood or outfit.

Think about what you love and know that it probably comes in the form of jewelry. Figural jewelry is also a perfect gift for someone with special interests.You can find one for someone special in your life that you know they will just love.

(Can you tell we love flowers and fish? In no particular order of course!)

One of our favorite on trend ways to wear figural jewelry is to find an old tie and give it new life. Pin it up with a snowflake or vintage flower motif brooch. This is how you rock a turtleneck on the last crisp days of spring. You can use a heavy brooch for thicker garments and a smaller brooch for lighter ones.

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) only produced a few hundred pieces of his art jewelry, and the most significant example in the Museum’s collection—the “peacock” necklace—is arguably the designer’s most important existing work in the medium. Though reportedly designed for the debut of his line of art jewelry at the 1904 Universal Exposition in St. Louis, the peacock necklace was not exhibited until 1906 at the Société des Artistes Français in Paris. The front medallion features a peacock mosaic of opals and enamels surrounded by amethysts and sapphires. Exhibition pieces were finished on both sides, and the back of the necklace is an enameled design of pink flamingos.

    Hi,

    Was a great selection! I, myself, being fond of insect jewelry, have listed an adorable piece on my Midwest Art Objects site (item RH-572). It would have been in good company had it had the privilege of being selected (viewed, first)
    Your concluding selection of Tiffany’s c. 1906 Peacock & Flamingo Necklace is just divine…

      Thank you so much! We were fortunate to see the Tiffany necklace in person at the Morse Museum in Florida. Breathtaking! We would love to see your insect jewelry sometime and will definitely highlight you soon! We appreciate your comment.
