The first version of the sentence is way better than your edit, and it doesn't have any dangling modifiers. A couple of updates are needed, though:

 

  • Change "muscians" to "musician's," to show possession.
  • Add a comma before "which."

 

The musician's wife wore a diamond pin in her hair, which had been bought in Paris.

 

You could strengthen your sentence by making the vague "which had been bought" more specific. For instance:

 

The musician's wife wore a diamond pin in her hair, which she bought in Paris.

 

Hope that helps!
