It looks like they are pins.  I’m not sure I would want to bustle my dress with pins – as if they get put in wrong, you could end up damaging it.  Plus you will probably find that you need to bustle and un-bustle your dress more than once on the day of – for the photography – and it’s just so much easier when you’re tying ribbons or slipping loops over buttons that are already there.  I would think you would still have to mark where the pins would go, or every time your bustle will be different.

If you just use it as a decorative thing, maybe to cover the tie or ribbon, then you still have to worry about putting them in and taking them out more than once – but if that’s not an issue, I’m sure they are pretty.  The ones that I was were $150 – $200 a set, so they’re certainly not a cheap alternative to a seamstress – all my alterations including the bustle cost less than that.
