The hairpins were mostly rectangular, round, or butterfly shaped, made of jade and decorated with coral, malachite or pearl. Bee, butterfly, and phoenix motives are attached to the end of a spring so that they flutter as one moves.

History of the Object
A fluttering hairpin, the most magnificent of all hair ornaments, was worn by queens and noble women on the center and both sides of braided hair coiled around their heads during ceremonial events.
