Founded in 1921 in Florence, Gucci has grown to become one of the world's most famous fashion houses, thanks to creative input from the likes of Tom Ford and Frida Giannini. Now under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, who was promoted from a behind-the-scenes designer in 2015, the Italian label has a more romantic outlook on things. Expect pussy-bow blouses, charm bracelets and brooches with the brand's usual luxury handwriting but also a more obvious prettiness.

How To Care For Your Gucci Brooch
Women’s Gucci brooches are costume jewelry pieces, and are not to be worn as fine jewelry. Made mostly from metal such as palladium as well as other materials such as fabric, brooches may tarnish and change color over time. Embellished items may need to be handled and stored with care.
To care for your Gucci brooch and prolong its appearance, follow these instructions.
• Always store your Gucci brooch in the box or bag provided when not in use.
• Avoid long exposure to sunlight and avoid direct contact with water.
• Avoid chemicals such as perfumes, sprays and other products.
• Polish your brooch with a microfiber cloth to keep it clean after wearing.
