    Bar brooch is a long horizontal brooch usually set with a row of diamonds or calibré-cut gemstones. During the Victorian era, when bar brooches started to gain popularity, they were made chiefly of gold, sometimes decoratively etched and studded with small pearls and gemstones. This style of brooches became hugely popular during the Edwardian period, presumably due to its compatibility with fashion of that time. Bar brooches were pinned to the front of a lady’s high neck collar or used to hold a jabot collar in place. Bar brooches continued to develop during the Art Deco period, where the design inclined towards more geometrical shapes and outlines.
