    Default Where to buy a nice brooch?

    Hey learned ladies!
    My aunt is turning 70 next month and I'd like to get her something small but nice. I was thinking a brooch?
    She's the kind of woman who is very elegant, doesn't look her age, dresses modestly, quite upmarket, always immaculate.
    I want to get something thoughtful for her as she lost her only child to cancer 18 months ago buuuuut I only want to spend up to $100 though
    Any ideas where to get a nice little brooch or any other ideas for a gift?
    I'm so hopeless at this so any ideas welcome!!

    Adelaide exchange jewellers ? They have vintage pieces I would imagine but have no idea how much they would charge. There is also a lady on fb called lily buds buttons and bestokes she is based in Perth and does individual and custom piece s

    Try looking on Etsy. Not just handmade but lots of vintage pieces on there too.

    I understand! I just did a quick search under vintage brooch and then filtered to include only australian sellers and items between $50-80 and there were some really lovely pieces of you don't mind giving vintage/pre-loved.

    This one is really pretty. But lots of others from different eras depending of the style you are looking for.

    Of course there is always handmade as well but you have to sift through a lot more in terms of quality.

    I love Etsy!

    Etsy would be great for a brooch. You may have luck at an independent jeweller, too.

    Another idea is a shawl.
