This penannular brooch is practical, functional and beautiful. These pins/brooches are strong and made to be used. The pin sits on the loop: held in position by the pull of the fabric through which it passes. Brooches initially developed from the Roman clasp or fibula. In the severe climate of northern Europe, the brooch became the typical ornament of the era, because it normally functioned as a fastening for a heavy tunic or cloak.
I received the brooch today and I am extremely happy with the product. It is a sturdy, well made piece. It's heavier than I expected, but that only goes to show the quality with which it has been crafted. I look forward to having and using this treasure for many years to come. Thankyou!
