Congrats to this classic royal brooch, which narrowly triumphed over one of its siblings in our final contest! The Five won 1,981 (53.2%) of your votes. while the Three and Four brought in 1,743 (46.8%) of the votes. This was a close one the entire time!



Thanks so much to everyone who played along with our brooch tournament. But never fear, fans of jewelry competition and voting: I'm launching a third version of our tournaments tomorrow morning! Any guesses about the sparkling competition??? (Here's a hint: we're not following the Brits this time around...!)
