I have always enjoyed watching historical based series, I like their clothes, complements and decoration. Surely there are more lovers of historical series? Well, here are 3 different types of chatelaine brooch inspired by Downton Abbey by Julian Fellowes’ series!
This Downton Abbey Chatelaine brooch is inspired by my love for this beautiful series. Also because I’m in love with vintage fashion.
Did you know that the chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it? Each chain is mounted with useful household appendages such as scissors, thimbles, watches, keys, smelling salts, and household seals. See more about chatelaines here.
The name chatelaine derives from the French term châtelaine which meant the mistress of a chateau. She would have worn a belt for her keys, which the current meaning of chatelaine derives from.
This vintage fashion inspired brooch therefore, it’s ideal for any fashion enthusiast because is comfortable and aesthetic, they have a little needle compared with other brooches, so your clothes will take as little damage as possible. Choose the design that matches with you.
Metal alloy, methacrylate and resin.
