Twists of Fate - Antique Diamond Hair Pins
Twists of rich yellow gold are dotted with trios of rose cut diamond melees. Every other twist sports that hint of glitter - 14 in all for each hair pin. Horn is the material of choice for the pins themselves - blond and smooth they are understated and ultimately useful. Coiffed and pampered, your hair will respond in kind.
Measurements: The hair pins have a length of 3-3/4 inches (9.6 cm) and a width from side to side of 3/4 of an inch (1.9 cm). The gold twist's width is 3/16 of an inch (0.5 cm) and and length is 7/8 of an inch (2.3 cm). One hair pin's weight is 5.4 grams (3.5 dwt) and both hair pins together have a weight of 10.9 grams (7.0 dwt).
Date & Origin: Circa 1900.
