Matching pair of vintage pins in the shape of a star, with 5 points rendered in sparkling teardrop-cut rhinestones arrayed around a central chaton. Stones are set in a metal backing fitted with a tie-tack pin that locks securely into a dimpled butterfly clutch until the "wings" are squeezed to release it. Pin sets such as this were popular at mid-century to dress up the corners of a square-cut neckline on a dress or blouse or the collar of a twinset sweater. Today their simple shape and soft shimmer would add a stylish retro touch on a jacket lapel, turtleneck, hat, or scarf.

Good condition overall. Stones excellent, finish worn on backing.
