venetian nails levis commons


Long ago, folks in Venice used to secure their garments with pins made of either horn or bone. Eventually, they moved away from such animal-based elements and began to make metal pins in the 13th century. By the 14th century, these pins were being bedazzled with enamel – stylish accentuations that evolved even further as time went on. As the 15th century came and went, these metal pins with enamel finishes had transformed into the Venetian nails we are familiar with today.

Tiny metal pins boasting a pretty head, Venetian nails could be employed as a fastening for clothing, or make their way into someone’s life as a special gift. It was not uncommon for them to even serve as commerce, acting as a currency for transactions.

A hallmark of Venetian nails is the filigree variety, renowned for their delicate metal shafts featuring decorative heads. These often embellished ends were frequently adorned with enamel or beaded details.

Crafted of both silver and gold, Venetian nails were luxurious adornments; exquisite and glittering gems would decorate the metal.

Venetian nails weren’t just put to good use for keeping garments in place – they were also utilized as a decorative device. Folks would adorn their clothing with these nails, using them to fashion trimming along the perimeter and adorn their attire with fanciful add-ons.

A personal expression of beauty, Venetian nails added to the fashion and atmosphere of the era when worn as accessories in locks of hair or upon fabric.

From tokens of appreciation to useful forms of currency, Venetian nails were frequently bestowed upon those close to the giver. Whether buying a trinket for a friend, exchanging a gift with family, or expressing admiration for a lover, Venetian nails were employed as an appreciated form of exchange.

Venice’s very own Venetian nails saw great popularity in Europe, the likes of which eventually traveled beyond its borders – to France and especially, England.

Venetian nails remain a popular form of decoration for apparel, and even as a thoughtful gift. Adornment, such as the illustrative addition of embellishments, has taken the place of casual trimming for the edges of garments. These nails are definitely still in fashion.
