Why this is a
Masterpiece

Jade in the color of blue-green was most commonly used. It was thought as a jewel of 5 virtues; benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom and sincerity. Jade was usually made into plain binyeo, but in some cases carved into elaborate shapes.

History of the Object
A binyeo, a long hairpin, was in fashion when women started wearing their hair back into a chignon, after the ban of wearing gachae (hair extensions). Binyeos are both functional and decorative.
