Here are a few lovely sparkling things that caught my eye - perfect to dress up a dull outfit that needs some cheer and extra oomph. Taking a style leaf from The Queen, wear near to the face so the light from the crystals radiates your complexion.
*note I put the most expensive one first! Forgive my deluxe taste I know in these squeezed times we should be more restrained but it doesn't mean we can't window shop and marvel.
Diamond Spray Brooch guide price at auction from Bonhams £1500-2000
Crystal oversized brooch from Debenhams £40 Super shiny and glitzy, I must have been a magpie in a previous life.
Crystal and Pearl Brooch from Accessorize £9 This is more my budget and will look great pinned against my grey faux fur collar.
