Pin is approximately 4 inches in height with a gold metal finish, pin on pin with translucent sandblast enamel, pearl enamel, raised and recessed metal, custom backstamp, screenprint, and gemstones according to the birthstone for each month placed in each corner. Each pin comes with two rubber backings for a secure and soft grip on a custom backing card! Please note all products are handmade and no product is 100% perfect. Each is uniquely made by hand therefor some products can vary especially when adding effects.
Please note all products are handmade and no product is 100% perfect. Each is uniquely made by hand therefor some products can vary especially when adding effects. Almost every step of the pin manufacturing process is handled by a person, not a machine. So understand that a "flawless" pin is nearly impossible to acquire. So this is the general outline of how I grade each pin:
Standard Grade/A Grade: Free of major defects but may contain slight imperfections that are only visible upon close-up inspection and/or from looking at the pin under certain lighting or from a specific angle. Standard grades may have flaws that can only be seen by tilting under a lightsource, or cannot be seen once held at arms length. Standard Grade can contain minor manufacturing beauty marks that ranges from superficial lines to minor visual non-impactful marks this occurs during manufacturing
B Grade: May contain slightly more noticeable flaws. Examples include air bubbles, pin pricks, stray paint/glitter specs, scratches, metal plating defects (excluding backs) or low filled enamel, random specs of dirt, dust, glitter, fibers.
C Grade: C grades, or flawed pins, may have multiple of the flaws outlined in B grades, more noticeable damage like punctures, or a face flaw such as minor misprint or imperfect enamel. I will not sell pins that are badly damaged, especially in the face, so these flaws shouldn't be a massive distraction from the overall pin.
