Modern updates to classic jeweled brooches, hair pins, and charms have recently surfaced in boutiques and on the streets of Los Angeles. It would only appropriate that we turn to the originators of the style. Verdura rose to fame in the 1960′s as the head designer in charge of the Chanel boutique jewelry collection. Their eccentricity in design and the sheer quality of their pieces is ne’er matched. Featured above: Target Brooch in platinum, diamond and gold.
