Spanish Peineta Rhinestone Hair CombSpanish Peineta Rhinestone Hair CombSpanish Peineta Rhinestone Hair CombSpanish Peineta Rhinestone Hair Comb

In Spain, a peineta is a large decorative comb usually worn under a mantilla, or lace head covering. This one is gorgeous with a tortoise colored comb with topaz rhinestones in it. It measures 6-1/2" x 3-1/2" including the teeth of the comb.

The hair ornament, worn by women, consists of a convex body and a set of teeth that affix it to hair worn in a bun. The peineta was once made of tortoise shell, but is now usually made of synthetic materials such as acrylic or plastic.

The origin of the peineta goes back to the 19th century in Spain, but there is evidence of its use on the Iberian Peninsula as early as the 5th century and in other areas from the 17th century. It is used today primarily during special occasions such as weddings, bullfights, Holy Week processions, and traditional performances of flamenco music.

The peineta is usually worn with a mantilla, a veil worn over the head and shoulders.
