from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A seal, locket, charm, or other small trinket or article of jewelry attached to a watch-chain.
Mother-of-pearl brooches, hair ornaments, and breloques surrounded with diamonds are just beginning to be the rage in Paris.
The slashes were richly embroidered with three shades of gold and had a breloque fringe of gold.
Fancy jewelry copied after antique designs is the favorite, and breloques are once more suspended from the waist sustaining countless treasures vying with each other in value and beauty, and whoever is fortunate enough to possess a coat-of-arms has it engraved upon his gold or silver breloque.
‘Breloque’ translates from the French as ‘charm.’
