The Rubin Brooch by Eternal Collection

[This post is a collaboration with Eternal Collection.]

When the people at Eternal Collection got in touch last week and asked if I’d like to try a piece of their lovely jewellery, I went straight to the brooch section, and then straight to this little Swarovski crystal puppy dog… which just so happens to look just like my own little puppy – although it has to be said that the brooch is definitely a whole lot cleaner.

I may not have a great track record with brooches, but I do love them, and they’re one of the few pieces of jewellery I wear on a regular basis. I’ve always been lazy about accessories: I love the look of pretty bracelets and necklaces, but brooches seem to work better with my personal style, and I love the way they can make a plain sweater seem special, or brighten up a winter coat.

(And yes, I DO think of this brooch as a “him”…) With that said, there was also a cat, a horse, an elephant and a penguin which caught my eye – I’ve had to stop looking, or I’ll end up with a brooch menagerie. Well, you all know how I feel about Things That Have Faces

You can check out the Eternal Collection’s brooch collection at their website, which also carries a range of beautiful jewellery and other accessories. If you do end up buying yourself a brooch with a face, don’t forget to tell me which one you choose!

    D’aww, it really looks like Rubin! Love the outfit with the green pop of colour and the sparkling quality of the brooch, very elegant.

  • The Rubin brooch is cute, definitely not as cute as the real thing though it definitely won’t run mud all inside your house.

  • Dog brooches are basically the best brooches. I have an Erstwilder one of my future dog (seeing as I can’t have a real one right now) and it makes any outfit instantly brighter. Funnily enough, I’ve been wearing it particularly on my black faux fur short jacket! I love yours on a furry collar though, such a nice touch.

  • I’m in big love with that skirt on you, although it looks nothing like the company’s own pictures of it!
