Most product reviews I do here on the blog are typically from one of two types of companies; ones I have never heard of, or ones I have heard of, but never purchased from. So today’s product review is different in that I am reviewing something from a company I already know and love, Match Accessories. Recently they revamped their wildly popular Disneyland inspired “D” brooches, and I was recently given some of these newly revamped brooches, and asked to share my thoughts on the changes they made, as well as host a giveaway!
Match Accessories, best known for their Disneyland inspired “D” brooches, sells brooches, earrings, and necklaces, all with vintage vibes, and I can honestly say I’ve never been disappointed in a piece. But, I’m not everyone, and, sadly, some people had issues, and Match listened. Previously, Match was gluing on their pin-backs, and they were getting a few reports of brooches separating from their pin-backs, falling, and shattering. They have now remedied that in several ways, and I’m really impressed! This new generation of “D” brooches are thicker, by a good margin. Just check out this side by side image. The new brooch is on the left, the older brooch on the right.
They also moved away from just glue, now pin-backs are riveted on, and much more secure. The new pin-back sturdier, and still features the locking clasp. The new D is on top of an older one in the image below.
Since receiving my new brooches, I’ve worn several to the Disneyland Resort, including wearing them on attractions such as Tower of Terror and Big Thunder Mountain, and haven’t had any issues. I also got a slew of compliments! Minnie Mouse even spied it on me and simply loved it, pointing to it and jumping up and down excitedly.
And best of all, you can enter to win your very own “D” brooch in their latest style, a new faux tortoise shell! Perfect to wear with any and all tortoise shell jewelry or “root beer” bakelite!
