Pins represent probably the longest tradition of producing and adapting jewellry among the Balts as well as being pieces of jewelry of local origin, which have undergone European influence. The variety of forms and production techniques involving this type of jewelry as local and general European traditions influenced one another reveals their unbroken development from the end of the Stone Age and the Late Neolithic to the Baroque Period of the seventeenth century.

Pins may be used to join clothing together, attach jewelry (usually on chains across the chest), keep hair in place, and to affix hats and other pieces of hedgear, scarves and cloaks.
