Stickpins, also known as tie pins, have been collected since the 18th century when neckwear for men came into fashion. They were made in all manner of styles well into the 20th century, with no limits to the imagination as the pursuit of novelty came into full swing. The sun moon and stars motif represents the flow of time as our world cycles through from day to night. We love the ethereal beauty of this stick pin with its combination of tiny pearls and turquoise, which we think helps to bring a little beauty and color to any manner of clothing. Our 9k gold stickpin is hallmarked Chester 1902 and is 9K. A wonderful gift for the astronomer, astrologer, or any individual who loves the wonderful accessory addition to a scarf, necktie, blouse or sweater.
