Medieval Brooches for sale

During the Medieval period it became fashionable to use a brooch pinned at the neck as a type of medieval fastener. The brooch pin was pushed through the edge of the garment, where a gap in the hem would have been left to allow a pin to be inserted. The Medieval Brooch was of a annular form with a constriction at one point on the diameter where separate movable pin would have been hinged. Medieval Brooches were by both men and women from the 12th century but were extremely popular during the 13th and 14th centuries.
