BROOCH (חָח, H2626; LXX σφραγιδας). An ornamental clasp, with a tongue and catch, which served functionally as a safety pin.

The brooches of Exodus 35:22 were of gold, but bronze and iron were widely used for the common fibula. It was introduced into Pal. in the 10th cent. b.c., succeeding the toggle pin. The brooch was worn by both sexes to fasten garments, appeared in a variety of ornamented designs, and had both spring and hinge type pins.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Used in plural by the Revised Version (British and American) (the King James Version "bracelets") for a class of "jewels of gold" brought as offerings by both men and women of Israel (Ex 35:22). "Brooches," as Mackie says, is unoriental. The Hebrew word means most likely nose-rings.

See Bracelet; Ring.
