Orchid Magnet Brooch – Small (Rust)


Description: Brooch with magnetic attachment. Orchid on a setting intended to be largely hidden by the flowers which overlap. Setting either gold or silver plated or of Koa wood.

Size: Setting 5.5 x 1 cm (approx 2.25” x 0.3”). Flower protrudes over the setting as shown.

Artist’s Comments:

Visually: This piece makes a stunning impact and distinctly different from a florist’s corsage. Can be worn at several different angles – there is no formalized top or bottom to this design.

Practically: The magnet is very strong and can be applied to a jacket or blazer lapel with confidence, making no holes and being easy to apply or remove.

Backing Available in Silver or Gold or Koa Wood.



Real Flower Jewelry’s Magnet Brooch is one of our greatest innovations! We have attached a strong magnet, instead of a conventional bar pin and safety catch, to the back of the setting. In addition we have supplied another very strong magnet, conveniently attached to a disc about the size of an American quarter coin, which makes it easier to handle and less easy to lose. The loose magnet is placed behind the fabric on to which the brooch is to be attached. The brooch is then placed in front of the fabric, over the loose magnet at the back, and the two magnets will hold the item very firmly in place. This is far more practical than any conventional pin.

Our magnet brooch is perfect:

  • They make no holes in luxury or delicate fabrics or clothing
  • They are very easy to put on or take off – no difficult pinpoints, or bar pins – hence ideal as gifts to those who are no longer nimble with their fingers, from injury, arthritis or rheumatism
  • Great for those whose eyesight has difficulty in seeing the detail of conventional safety catches.
  • Light weight – no drag on delicate clothing especially in warm climates.
  • Tight grip – will not slip or slide on silk. Designed to be worn on fabric as thick as the lapel of a jacket or coat, this tight grip prevents “yawing” or leaning outwards. Our magnet brooches keep our jewelry tight and flat against the clothing.
  • More versatile than conventional bar-pin brooches – will hold on lace, where otherwise the holes and delicate weave would prevent a conventional pin from sitting straight.
  • Great novelty and attention-getter in gift jewelry

Caution : Not to be worn by those using a heart pace maker.

FOR BEST RESULTS …With one hand hold the brooch by the setting only, with the other hold the loose magnet by its easy-to-grip disc. Place the disc, with the magnet facing forward, behind the clothing just where you wish the brooch to be. Then place the brooch over the position of the loose magnet and the two will snap strongly into place. On removal, hold each of the two parts as before, and SLIDE them apart, – NEVER PULL! (Yes, pulling is easier, but risks the loose magnet with disc falling and being lost in one’s clothing if not held as recommended)
