Pin Grading

Pins are HANDMADE ITEMS so they can have slight flaws that naturally occur during production. Realistically no handmade item is perfect, so we sort our inventory to ensure that you are able to get the best quality available.

STANDARD: No major defects but may have barely noticeable imperfections under close inspection. Standard grade is the best pins available.

SECONDS: No major defects, but more noticeable minor flaws. The best choice if you're on a budget and they are perfect for wearing! 

The majority of our seconds pins are considered "B" grade, so we just call them all "Seconds". But if there are more noticeable differences between batches of pins, we might add "B+" and "C" grade pins to the shop. Prices will be marked down for lower graded pins :)

Check out our reviews on our Instagram story highlights :) Poor quality pins that do not pass our inspection will not be sold online. We don't sell pins that are highly damaged, missing posts, or have huge quality issues.
