A gorgeous Art Nouveau vintage hair barrette dating to the 1890’s. Barrette is a gold-tone base metal with a silver-tone accent. Silver portion of the mounting is set with nine imitation turquoise cabochons (most likely glass) of graduated sizes. Overall length of the barrette is 2 1/16-inches in length and 3/4-inches wide. Reverse has a traditional style barrette finding that functions properly. Condition is very good: gold overlay has worn in some spots but doesn’t detract from the beauty of the piece.

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.
