Throughout the ages brooches and badges have been worn in a variety of fashions and for diverse reasons. In this beautifully illustrated book, Rachel Church charts the history and evolution of these symbolic and expressive pieces of jewelry.

Brooches and Badges is a concise history of these versatile and evocative ornaments, and features a wide range of illustrations from period paintings and sketches to photographs, making it a must-have resource for students, designers, and lovers of jewelry.An engaging overview of the changing styles and uses of brooches and badges from medieval ring brooches to the pop-DIY aesthetic of twentieth- century counterculture badges, and beyond.
