Del Sole Comb
Gorgeous unique well-crafted piece
Not sure why there are some negative reviews about this piece - after searching far and wide for a flower headpiece for my wedding, I ordered this striking comb (at full price!) and was so glad I did. It is definitely a deep ivory / champagne color, and for that reason will not go well with very white dresses - it will work better with ivory or champagne dresses, as pictured. I wore it with a romantic lace dress, and it was perfect. I loved that the design was that of two flowers, but it was constructed using feathers. The 'stems' of the feathers are delicate, so you must be careful when handling them. But the comb was very well-constructed, and easily stayed in place all day. It is much better constructed than a lot of more expensive hair pieces I tried, including those from Twigs and Honey, which are quite flimsy in person. If you are worried that the comb will be a bit too much, or will look too dramatic I would wear it lower in your hair. I placed it on one side, just below and behind my ear, and it was lovely. At the sale price, this is a STEAL for a unique and handcrafted piece. I can't recommend it enough.

like it but could just be lucky
I bought this in 2011 and am surprised with the more recent negative reviews. Mine is almost exactly the color in the photo, and perfectly matches my dress which is a champagne satin (darker than ivory). I wanted something a bit more modern looking, and think this is a good piece that can go either way depending on what you are wearing. I haven't worn it yet since my wedding is in the fall of 2012, but no feathers have fallen out and nothing has changed color. I did think it was expensive for what you get, you can definitely attempt to make something similar. But once I found out it perfectly matched my dress, I figured it wasn't worth the effort on my part to try. Other than the high price, the only other negative is the box it was shipped in is too small, so I have taken it out and will need to find something larger to transport it in.

cool design, but disappointing quality
I really wanted to love -- and to keep -- this hair comb. But after ordering it three times (I liked it that much), I regrettably had to give up. The first comb I received was a perfect butter-yellow color -- nothing like the picture, but a great surprise. But the back of the comb was COMPLETELY unfinished, making it impossible to wear in my short hair, which wouldn't cover the flawed design. Plus, a feather fell out as soon as I took it out of the box. I returned it, and BHLDN kindly sent another comb in exchange. This one was finished, and more like a beige color, but, as another reviewer said, it just looked cheaply made. Visible glue and loose feathers. I tried one last time, receiving a tan colored comb on this occasion. The quality was the same -- really poor. The design of this comb is so unique with its spiky edges and non-traditional feel, but I felt it would be embarrassing to wear, given the poor quality.

not worth it for the price
I have been debating on purchasing this comb but took the leap and now I am sorry. The quality of the one I received is nowhere near the one in the photo. This item is "made in China" and looks cheap. The feathers are tattered and sloppily trimmed and the color is more yellow than peach. I am very dissapointed and expected better for the price. :(
