Hatpins were functional and necessary many years ago when a Hat was worn for almost every occasion. The long pins were used to keep the Hat in place by sliding the pin thru the Hat and a section of the hair.
They can be worn as a Hat Pin, or as a long stick pin on a coat, sweater, blazer or jacket.

Please Note: This is a newly created pin in a vintage style design. Sometimes actual vintage ornaments and parts are used on my hat pins when I have them available. Sometimes longer pins will have a very slight bend in the stem, this is normal and does not affect the pin in any way.
