Botany of Desire Chignon Pin
This one of a kind hair accessory with its notes of Art Nouveau and neo-classical styling is designed to cradle a chignon, the artful hairstyle featuring a twist or bun at the back of the head.
The Botany of Desire pin is entirely hand forged and fabricated in Argentium, a premier form of sterling silver that is tarnish resistant and set with a verdant green onyx cabochon and two sparkling faceted peridots. The decorative pierced and overlaid silver top has a matte, pebbly texture; the tines are smooth and twisted for extra hold. This is truly a one of a kind accessory for those with an infatuation with botanical greens and a fanciful esthetic.
The pin measures approximately 4-1/2" from top to bottom, and just over 3" at its widest point.

Onyx is an excellent stone for releasing negativity, and for cultivating consistency, focus, dedication and discipline. Those who have difficulty with commitment can benefit from wearing onyx or keeping it nearby. It is associated with good fortune and judgment, and also with fidelity.
