This category is for penannular brooches, "pseudo-penannular" brooches, and associated types of ring-pins, pin-brooches, etc

English: The Celtic brooch, more properly called the penannular brooch, and its closely related type, the pseudo-penannular brooch, are types of brooch clothes fasteners, often rather large. Annular means formed as a ring and penannular formed as an incomplete ring; both terms have a range of uses. Pseudo-penannular is a coinage restricted to brooches, and refers to those brooches where there is no opening in the ring, but the design retains features of a penannular brooch—for example, emphasizing two terminals.
