Hi all,

I would like to share my new purchase. I have recently got into wearing boutonnieres. I have a variety of them to help spruce up my waistcoat.

I was searching and found something on eBay and loved it.. But i had to get more pics and enlisted the help of Gypsy ( :wavey: :appl: )to help me understand the cut of the OEC based on pics. And of course my dear friend (the voice of reason) susimoo :bigsmile: .....

I dont really know the specs but i dare say it about 0.1ct and maybe a warm colour... not sure what grade...

Email and pictures traded and then hit BUY!!!!!!
any way....here are the pic i have.....

Enjoy.....

How unique and cool! I love the vintage bling and it really gives your coat some character. The engraving is beautiful, too. Nice buy!!!

Greg I think it is perfect for every day and going to work so don't let a few silly comments deter you from wearing and enjoying your gorgeous OEC pin. Please trust me on this. My dh has impeccable taste and he gives it his thumbs up approval. Wear and enjoy it!

Missy - Thank you. When ppl were commenting i took it as a compliment.... in the sense that they appreciated that i look smart and different for everyday... cos they have never seen an outfit/ how i dress unless they are going/ been to a wedding.

You are right, it doesn't deter me at all. I think that i am giving ppl an idea on how work clothes can be spruced up. it may not be their cup of tea, but it certainly is mine, for now :) And, I love this pin and will wear it well. i have a few others : mainly flowers but there is one other with is a chinese dragon with a coin as its stopper. I post on [email protected] on FB....i may be a bit of an internet wh*#&... but, if anyone cares to follow me... hehehe.

Thank your hubby for me! i appreciate his thumbs up!!!! :wavey: :appl:

how are things going with you??? i recall a while ago, that things have been rather tumultous and recovery was crazy... i havent been on PS like i used to be.. i just check in now and then....

Thanx tekate- i took it for what it meant... i didnt take it for the other way at all...

Thanx Jimmianne...i am not sure of trendsetting..... i work in the suburbs and i dont see any one else dress things up like this.... though, i work in a rather small shopping centre.

What a great way to use an old hat pin!! I love when old pieces can be used or worn in a new way! Doesn't it feel great wearing something from another time! Beautiful piece! Enjoy!! If I spot any other special antique hat pins I will send pictures your :love: :appl: way!

Your pin is beautiful! I love the detail! The idea of wearing the hat pin on your clothing is wonderful.

What is the material of the second pin? Are those stones on it?

Thank you!!!! i am not sure of the material- it is textured.... i got it on ebay and i am linking it here so you can see the material....
it has indents (not perforated) in the material.. not sure of how else to describe it....as you can see from the link... super cheap... so i may have bought a few different kinds LOL
