This beautiful vintage pin is called a jabot.
A jabot pin is a brooch with a bejeweled motif at either end. It is pinned in such a way that only the decorative ends are seen, allowing the fabric to show in between. Circa mid-seventeenth century, jabot pins were used to secure the ruffled or lace piece of fabric (the jabot) that men wore on the front of their shirts.
This pin, detaches at one end and screws back on. It is made of celluloid and has rhinestones set into it. Made in the 1940's, It measures 2-1/4" x 1" and is in great condition. Works very well as a brooch also!
