I think they're the perfect accessory! I love earrings but having quite long hair you don't always see them.
Unfortunately, after lots of research, I don't know much about these particular brooches.
The Butterfly and Dragonfly were my mums which she bought in the 80's.
The ornate one was my grandma's. I've no idea what decade its from, it's sterling silver and has a Hallmark but even with a magnifying glass I couldn't make it out. My mum took it to be valued about 15 years ago and was told it wasn't worth much, I still love it though!
