They are a beautiful pin but two of the 8 were bent at the top of the cross and it seemed too silly to return them for an exchange so I tried to straighten the top of the cross and, believe it or not, broke both of them...so now there are 6.
This is the second time I have ordered this particular item. A couple of years back, I gave it as a Christmas gift to fellow choir members in the church that I have been singing in the choir. Now I am a music director of another church and I gave this as my Christmas gift to my choir members. They pin it to their choir robe or stole.
