Rated 3 out of 5Â by kaleidoscope mixed blessing
These first caught my eye in store. I was especially drawn to the blue/green set. Several of the choices in store had small scratches on the larger pins, so I saved these for an online purchase hoping for a pristine set. The set from online did arrive, but again the larger pins were scuffed despite being brand new.
The second issue I had was that the gold bobby pins had rough edges, so I had to be very careful with my initial placement of these (or upon removal they would either spoil my updo or take long strands of hair with them).
Although I still like the aesthetic (not love), these more practical issues meant that $24 was too much to stomach. If I had a special occasion in mind where I knew these would be useful, I might be swayed more toward them than against, but as it is... they went back.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jer526 Great pins!
These pins are absolutely beautiful. I purchased them in the mint set and adore them. The colors pictured are very accurate. Using one of these pins to tie back my bangs really helps to dress up or complete an outfit.
