Brooch of the Month - April 2013 - The Rhinestone Bow

Friday, April 5, 2013

April's featured brooch is one I got a couple years ago as a Christmas present from my parents. I saw it on Etsy and knew that it had to be added to my Christmas list! I didn't expect to get it though, so I was really excited to receive it.

As I was posting this, I got curious about why fake jewels are often called "rhinestones." According to Wikipedia, the name comes from the fact that the original fake gemstones were rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine. Interesting!
