Hello everyone. I forgot I found this until yesterday. I am not sure, I feel it is a hit or miss. I know it is nothing extra special, but it was the best find in a huge box of junk. Anyone recognize the design or style? Is it just one of those hairpins that would have come in a larger pack, and thus, garbage? Thanks!

Mystery Solved

    No, not garbage! Marcasite hair clip, or barrette, as we used to call it in the South. Might be a sterling base. Some little girl would love this - not a tiny tot, as this will be a bit heavy. Beautiful! Marcasite is the only jewelry I ever wear when I dress up.

    Sweet, thanks mikkochristmas11. How are you? It has been a few days since we spoke. I hope all is well! I found this in a box of junk and stuff. This was mixed in there with about 3,000 paperclips safety pins rubber bands, and some other nonsense. Okay, take care!
