Chinese culture has valued hairpins for centuries. Women and men alike used them to keep their hair in place centuries ago, and they were often crafted from expensive materials like gold, jade, and ivory. Gifts of hairpins were commonly exchanged between members of the nobility as a sign of respect and esteem.

Traditional Chinese hairstyles, such as the "bun" or "updo," are still worn by Chinese women today, especially at formal events like weddings and other ceremonies where appearance is paramount. Besides their practical function, hairpins can also be used for decorative purposes; they are commonly adorned with elaborate patterns and designs that reference Chinese art and symbolism.

Hairpins have practical uses in Chinese medicine in addition to their aesthetic and cultural significance. The term "hairpin needle" ( 发针) is sometimes used to refer to the hair-thin needles used by acupuncturists to stimulate specific points on the body.

In sum, hairpins continue to be treasured for their aesthetic value, symbolic significance, and functional value in Chinese society.

Silver Jewelry Maintenance Tips

  • The best way to maintain silver jewelry is to wear it regularly.
  • Avoid exposing it to seawater, hot springs, and sulfur soap.
  • If it turns black or yellow due to oxidation, the easiest way to clean it is to use a toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Traditional methods such as using a silver polishing cloth or a silver polishing stick can also restore it.
  • When not wearing it, wipe it dry with a cotton cloth or tissue, and store it in a sealed bag to isolate it from the air.
  • For most people, wearing silver jewelry makes it increasingly shiny, but for a few people, it may turn black, which is a normal reaction.
