Rated 3 out of 5 by Esterlou Green is pretty
My green pin had perfect enamel. I didn't keep it just because I thought it wasn't worth more than $100. with shipping. If you budget is bigger you would like it. would look beautiful on a blazer.

I wanted to lovelovelove this for the holiday season. Unfortuately, after a couple of weeks of dithering, it went back today. I don't know if JR has changed manufacturers, but this pin looked dime store-ish. As others have said, the enameling wasn't exact, and it just seemed to lack the sparkle it had on screen. I love Joan's jewelry; and wear it every day as a tribute. The bees and eggs are incredible. This....not so much. Sorry!

I bought this pin several years ago. I just saw it in my jewelry box the other day. Remembered why I didn't wear it - the pin broke the first time I tried to pin it to my coat. Thought I could get it fixed locally, but couldn't find anyone to repair costume jewelry. Very disappointed because I usually love Joan's pins.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cameolover Poor Quality
Although this pin is beautiful online, I was very disappointed in the item I received. The enameling had run out of the channel, the enamel was not complete on the center of the bow, and the metal and goldtone portions were cheap looking. The heavy weight of the piece indicates poor quality, not good craftsmanship.

Although the pin is lovely - the pinning mechanism itself is defective as it is not long enough to fit into the clasp. Of course I tossed the return boxes and invoices because when I received it I loved it until I tried to pin it to my coat. Now the red is on waitlist. Very disappointing.

The enamel was sloppy in places and spilled over onto the edges of the ribbon, which ruined the sharp delineation intended in the design, separating the bright gold ribbon border from the enamel coloring. The crystals were dull. I gave them my best look-see, by the bright kitchen window where I love to open my pin purchases to inspect them. They just did not sparkle no matter how I tilted them toward the sunshine. I opened one of Joan's bees next, and that had sparkle, so I had a good comparison for reference. I love this design and purchased both colors, but they are going back. I would have loved wearing these at the top closure of a silk blouse, at the neckline. So disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Shopper8 NOT SURE I'LL KEEP THIS
This pin is beautiful but it's not sparkly. The crystals on mine are dull. Others may be different. I'm not sure I'll keep it.

I ordered this in red and it's absolutely beautiful. It is a heavy pin so it will need to be fastened to something substantial like a wool blazer or a fabric coat. This a piece I will have for a lifetime due to the excellent quality of this piece.
