A pair of vintage 1920’s Czechoslovakian hair barrettes made of a gold-tone base metal and set with rhinestones. Each barrettes measures 1 3/8-inches (35.3 mm) in length and 11/16-inches (17 mm) wide. Mountings have a delicate milgrain design along the edges. They are stamped on reverse. Pin is also a lovely Art Nouveau design, made of a gold-tone base metal and set with rhinestones. The largest rhinestone, in the center, is prong set and measures 8.8 mm. It has a traditional style pin assembly that functions properly. Condition is very good: some of the rhinestones are discolored which is consistent with age and use. One of the tiny decorative tips of the barrettes has broken off but is minor.
All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. Many pieces have not been polished or cleaned (aside from a soft cloth) due to their delicate nature or to retain their natural patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot but please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in which they were received and within two (2) weeks of receipt.

*Do not immerse foilback rhinestones in liquid jewelry cleaner (it will destroy or damage the foil on the back of the stone which is what causes the sparkle of the stone); a soft damp cloth can be used safely. And, always put your jewelry on AFTER you have used perfume or hairspray. Your jewelry will thank you by being sparkly for a long time!
