I recently finished restoring this collection of beautiful antique hat pins. They had many stones missing along with mother-of-pearl pieces. It was both a challenge and joy making them whole again. They are amazingly long and large for hat pins. I believe the reason being so that in addition to sliding through the hat, they would also hold quite a bit of hair, probably worn in a bun. Here's hoping Kelly and her Grandmother will enjoy and treasure them more than ever!
