A bar brooch is any elongated horizontal brooch. Victorian bar brooches were designed as a simple bar with a central motif or plaque. Popular during the Edwardian period, these brooches were often a line of calibré cut colored stones or diamonds and pearls in a millegrained setting. Art Deco bar brooches followed the Edwardian style with a more geometric design.
