Shields of Honor Brooch in Shades of Gold and Red

Details

2" wide bronze tone pin whose surface is carved to simulate a branch; hanging below are 3 vintage enameled military insignia charms that dangle in a sophisticated manner. I'll let you puzzle over what makes a dangle "sophisticated".

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I don't know where these charms originated because, I traded some used books for them and a bag full of vintage rhinestones online. It's almost as much fun looking for interesting items to use as it is to make jewelry with them!

Even though I don't know what each of these charms really represents, I think it would be fun to make up stories of their history or how you were awarded each of them. The charm with the gold cross looks similar to a Jerusalem or Crusader's Cross to me except there is only one other cross around the edges instead of four (that sometimes represent the four gospels or the five wounds of Christ). Since the fleur-de-lis is a French symbol of royalty, wisdom, and chivalry, the white fleur-de-lis could represent a pure form of wisdom or the death of chivalry (since some cultures wear white at funerals).

Whatever symbols you choose, make them your own and imbue them with your own positive meanings.

I think the pin would fit equally well on a t-shirt or a man's suit.

Materials Used

Metal Alloy, Brass, Enamel

More Info

SHIPPING: Expedited shipping is available starting $6.50 for USPS Priority Mail. I use recycled shipping materials when possible, let me know if this is not acceptable.

CHARMS: Most charms can be changed quickly--just ask and I'll let you know if there's any price difference for the modification.

A great "universal gift" that just about anyone can wear and find their own meanings in the charms.

Policies

My goal is to make my buyer happy and if they're not happy with their purchase we can usually make arrangements for returns and a refund (minus shipping charges).

My shipping charges are extremely reasonable--I don't mark up the shipping to make more money--and reflect a tiny bit more than what I actually pay. If you need it faster, I can arrange it; if you are in the area and want to pick up your purchase to save shipping costs, we can arrange that, too.

Generally, on custom orders, I don't accept returns (because there are not many people with your initials, etc.) but I'm willing to discuss it with you and see if we can work out a compromise.

I use recycled shipping materials so you need to let me know if that's not acceptable.

If your purchase is a gift we can make the package super attractive (depending on your budget) but your purchase is generally wrapped in tissue and put in a tiny see-through gift bag (unless it's a gift for someone who's not quite so frilly then I'll put it in a small colored lunch bag).
