A bobby pin is a small and plain hair pin.

Jeweled hair pin
A jeweled hair pin is adorned with gemstones.
It is commonly decorated in floral, butterfly, and rainbow shapes.

Choosing Hair Pins (Buying tips)
Finish: Choose hair pins with plain finishes as coated or plated hair pins can peel off and look unattractive. Decoration: Choose a jeweled hair pain with a welded--not glued--decoration to prevent it from falling off easily.
