I have the Brown and the Purple tone pins and am very satisfied with both. Given the overall size of the brooch and the many large stones I was surprised how light-weight they are. Each has its own affinity for a range of colors from dark to light, blending well with most seasons garb, including hats, sashes, evening bags and scarves. The domed profile reminds one of higher end jewelry which of course this is not, but for a classic piece of costume jewelry at reduced prices you can't go wrong. Also, makes a great gift, no sizing info needed! BTW, If you are accustomed to the weight and quality of many of Joan Rivers' pins you will be disappointed, which is not to imply poor quality here, just a different level of same.

I ordered the purple colorway. I have jackets and sweaters in lots of different colors, and I was hoping that this pin could be worn with several items.
While the pin is pretty as a stand alone item, I found that most of the jackets in my closet made the pin look less attractive. The center stone is burgundy, and it's so dark that unless it's on a pastel background, the color gets lost. The surrounding teardrop shaped stones are shades of pink and peach. They are so translucent that they pick up the color of the background fabric, and lose their own identity. Against a red background, the pin became red. Against a peach background, the pin became peach. Against a purple background, it became so dark that the colors were indistinguishable.
If you are a lover of rose gold tones, and if you wear a lot of pastels, you'll love this pin. If you wear medium to jewel tones, this pin looses much of its charm. Although I purchased it at a great clearance price, I plan to return it. I'm looking for more "wow" factor, and against the colors my wardrobe, this pin lost all its pizzazz. Also, the pin is very dimensional-- it's at least 3/4" thick. Although it's not heavy, it may look too heavy to be worn on a lightweight sweater. It is really scaled to go on heavier fabric, like a wool blazer or a coat.

My pins arrived this week and I couldn't be more pleased. The colors are so striking. The pins really elevate the look of my wardrobe. I'm so glad that I purchased all 3 colors.

My pins in "Purple" and "Brown" arrived today. I am stunned by their beauty. Louis Dell'Olio has an incredible talent for choosing colors and selecting shades that enrich one another. Such a color genius! These pins are a feast for my eyes. My only regret is that I did not buy them sooner so that I could have been enjoying them the last several years.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seashell64 Too Heavy To Wear On Sweater
Very pretty and well made pin, but way too heavy to wear on a thinner weight sweater that I specifically bought it for. Would be better on a jacket. Returned.

Purchased this for my grand mom and she loves it. Only downside is that it seems the latch that is supposed to secure and fasten the pin in place can be easily slid to the opposite side, which causes it to fall off her coat constantly.

The pin itself is very pretty. The problem I had with it is that I could not push the pin throught the lapel of my ponte knit blazer. My efforts made the pin bend and I am afraid it will break if I try to fasten the pin to another dense fabric.

This pin has great proportion and visual interest. I ordered the Black and I am extremely pleased with both the look and feel. It is chic without being flashy.
