The demise of the hatpin marked a turning point for women's place in society. Laws made hatpins shorter for safety's sake. However, it was the wholesale entry of women into the work force during WWII, which ended the need for the hatpin, dress changed so dramatically.
This antique gold hatpin measures 6 1/4" long and is marked 10k on the head. The shaft is also gold and is nice and straight. A beautiful purple amethyst cabochon, with a 5 mm diameter, is bezel-set into the head.
