Miss Coconut just did a post on this not too long ago.  She recommends the site she used for brooches, pugster.com.  Here’s the link to her post- http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/06/01/brooches-cost-how-much/ I poked around on the site, and while some of the jewelry wasn’t my style, I agree that there are definitely some great finds at reasonable prices!

I got pearl brooches for the moms from eBay for great deals. I think most of them were under $10. I got a different style for each of them and I think they all look great.

I was looking for the same thing…I happened to find some really great big mother of pearl earrings on sale at a store, and took the earring back off, hot-glued the pieces together to cover up the hole where the wire was, and hot glued a pin back from Michael’s on the back.  The earrings were on sale for $6/pair, and the pin backs cost about $1…so less than $20 for six brooches, and about 10 minutes of work.

They look great, so don’t be afraid to think outside of the box if you don’t find something you like!
