Veil pins

I have been looking for pins, specially those used for veil with a type of gem or stone on the end. The only one I have found so far is the one from London

Does any of you know of other finds?

This one might be a veil pin. It is 52 mm long, and made of bronze. It was found in Threaves Castle in Scotland, and has been dated 14th-15th century.
Mordlysten krigsman, rå och hård i hjertat,
Och med ett samvete som helvet rymligt,
Skall rasa fritt med blodbestänkta händer
Och meja edra friska jungfrur af
Och edra fagra spenabarn som gräs
