Sparkle barrettes add a bit of 1920s flapper pizzazz to the right hairstyle and are typically adorned with various sizes of round-faceted rhinestones. This piece is a rarity; instead, it is jeweled with authentic natural diamonds. The word barrette is from the French, as arguably most chic objects are, from barre (“bar”) +? -ette, literally “small bar” for adornment while holding the hair in place. Hair accessories have been found in ancient cultures worldwide, from the Ancient Greeks and Romans, who used crowns made from foliage and flowers. In France in the 1600s, hair pins called “bobbing pins” (not to be confused with “bobby pins”) were either long and straight or U-shaped and used by men and women for their wigs to sit better on their heads, resulting in a neat appearance. Bobby pins came about around the 1920s to hold the new bobbed hairstyles and enabled women to create pin curls and finger waves. Decorative barrettes soon followed.

This outstanding 4 x 1.2 inch (10.16 x 3.05 cm) Contemporary Diamond Hinged Hair Clip Barrette, made in the 21st century, is crafted in 18K white gold and features 182 round brilliant cut diamonds weighing approximately 11.87 carats total and 20 baguette-cut diamonds weighing about 1.97 carat total. The diamonds are of D-F color and VS clarity. The entire barrette is a stylized infinity motif with concave arcs coming to points before changing directions. The mid-point and pointed tips are accented with baguette diamonds, arranged in petite Art Deco style ribbons, custom cut to fit closely within the 18K white gold borders. The streamlined look recalls calibré gemstones popularly used in geometric jewelry designs during the Roaring 20s.

Two full rows of brilliant sparkling rounds pave the curved surface of the barrettes, with a third row of graduated rounds coalescing on the inner curves at each end. Can you imagine wearing a sparkling barrette as light as 19.80 grams or less than an ounce yet packing such a glittering diamond punch as approximately 13.84 carats total—the barrette clips with a curved bar and two-ball lock for extra secure closure.

182 round brilliant diamonds weighing approximately 11.87 carats and 20 Baguette cut diamonds totaling 1.97. Diamond weight approx. 13.84 carats total, estimated D-F color, and VS clarity. Overall barette weight approx. 19.80 grams, made in 18k white gold; circa 21st Century.
