Brooches are ornaments known for centuries. In ancient Greece and Rome, they were used to fasten garments, and their appearance was similar to today's safety pins. It was a very popular gift idea, as evidenced by the inscriptions placed on them. They were most often made of bronze or iron, less often of precious metals, set with precious stones or embedded with enamel. Brooches did not lose their popularity in the Middle Ages, where they were still eagerly used by both men and women. With the invention and popularization of buttons and later zippers, brooches lost their position as an indispensable garment. In the nineteenth century, they began to be used as more decorative than functional elements, as evidenced by the number of cameo brooches from that period.
