Such a great color for Spring and Summer, bright purple/aqua beads lined inside with a light pink were used for this large (3 1/4 inches long or 80mm), authentic French Barrette.
It is made of strong, heavy gauge steel with an auto lock back. The spring and back are all one part. Barrette is stamped 'Made In France' on the back.
The barrette shouldn't be submerged in water, or left in extreme temperatures.
Color may vary due to monitor/screen differences/settings.
