Cravat pins, or ‘tie pins’, are traditional men’s dress accessories originating in the early nineteenth century. They are used to secure the folds in cravats, complementing the expensive and often delicate fabrics worn around the neck. Cravat pins rose in popularity throughout the nineteenth century thanks to the variety of styles available, and as the mass production of these dress accessories became more widespread, they were no longer confined to the upper classes.
Today, cravat pins are typically worn at very formal events and weddings, where a pearl or other precious stone sits elegantly on a silk cravat to complete the traditional style of the cravat. Among our range of tie accessories two styles of cravat pins are available; with the masonic symbol or with a pearl, the latter being a terrific accessory for groomsmen and ushers at a wedding.
