Britt’s Pick: Cicada’s Witch-on-a-Broom Brooch


This time of year you’ve got to love a good Halloween jewel.

There are plenty of great pieces available. But the best ones combine fine materials with fun imagery to create quirky yet opulent jewels. Forget quiet luxury, we’re talking about whimsical luxury.

Like this brooch from the always splendiferous Cicada. What a witch!

In blackened metal decorated with multicolor sapphires and diamonds, this spellbinding witchy woman is fittingly festooned in midnight-hued glitter, with strands of gold to create her hair and the bristles of her broom—her vehicle of choice.

Cicada’s large bejeweled witch makes a statement worthy of a memorable Halloween.

The brooch is bewitching in not only its design, but also its statement size. There’s no missing this Halloween icon when it’s pinned on—no witch hunt required.

“We wanted to create something fun and festive for the Halloween season,” says Burak Tirtirian of Cicada. “We love experimenting with different shapes and incorporating precious stones into our pieces. This witch pin was so fun to design and we adore the unexpected combination created. It is a true one-of-a-kind piece dedicated to someone for a curated eye seeking something nobody owns, a stand alone style.”

While Cicada’s creation certainly calls for Halloween exposure, it’s too gorgeous a treasure to reserve for one day (or month) out of the year. The symbol of the witch has been used to represent female empowerment, a challenge to the patriarchy—a potent sentiment suited to year-round wear, no matter the holiday or season.

No, it’s not just a bunch of hocus-pocus. Cicada’s brooch is packed with enough style and substance to cast a spell on even the most discerning of jewelry lovers.
