All items are genuine antiques, priced beyond competition with modern replicas. During the late Qing period, Chinese society faced internal and external challenges, leading to social unrest.

Against this backdrop, handicrafts, particularly relatively affordable silver jewelry, emerged as a significant cultural expression. The styles of rings during this time spanned various themes, such as flowers, animals, and mythological legends, reflecting the aesthetic preferences and cultural atmosphere of that era. Compared to the simple silver or even brass jewelry worn by ordinary people, the affluent and even the official class exhibit a more demanding taste when it comes to accessories. They may opt for materials like gold-plated silver to showcase their status, adding a touch of luxury to the durability of pure silver. The designs and patterns of the accessories require a higher level of craftsmanship.

In some cases, there are even sets of coordinated accessories, emphasizing the wearer's noble status and social standing. The set of gold-plated silver hairpins being offered for sale this time is a typical accessory for wealthy young ladies in the late Qing Dynasty. The intricate craftsmanship showcases five different types of flowers as the main theme, making it a high-end masterpiece among surviving late Qing jewelry.

It is an excellent collector's item, perfect for stylish women to wear, and can even be used as a shared accessory among five friends, each representing one of the flower themes. If you're interested, please feel free to inquire. 1 Our shop specializes in genuine antiques as well as reimagining Oriental antiques, and as a result, the estimated preparation time for products is expected to be between 1-2 weeks, potentially even sooner in practice. 2 Each item is practically one-of-a-kind.
