If you follow either the real news or jewellery news (or both for full effect), then it’s most likely that you have been introduced to Lady Brenda Hale, the President of the Supreme Court who ruled BoJo’s prorogation as unlawful.

The world (and by that, we mean Twitter) went into a frenzy trying to decipher what Lady Hale was trying to say by wearing a giant spider brooch when giving the verdict of the trial. Was it a not-so-subtle ode to her feelings of current politics? A metaphor for a creepy-crawly weaving itself a tangled web of lies? Or a trail-blazing fashion statement, in conjunction with the accessories seen on the catwalks of London, Paris and Milan in the September fashion weeks?

We can’t be sure, but what we do know after doing a little digging is that Lady Hale has a fantastic collection of insect and amphibian-inspired brooches, from spiders to centipedes to frogs. Take a look at some of our favourites…

We’re so excited that brooches are coming back into fashion, because they are a great excuse to use giant gemstones and our imaginations. We have some perfect stones in stock that are just waiting for some creativity – find them here.
