I love a well dressed man. Who doesn’t? The recently concluded Oscars saw men more stylish than ever before. Custom fit tuxedos in various hues that made me sit up and take note of what they’re wearing. After awhile, I saw a common thread. Most of the men I found dapper were wearing bejeweled pins!
Excitedly and obsessively I started scouring for estate pins and here’s what I’ve amassed.
If you like Jared Leto’s style, might I suggest this?
1920’s Art Deco pin with old mine cut diamonds on platinum over gold.
1940’s arrow pin with old cut diamonds on 18k yellow gold
I can see  Common wearing these
Crescent shaped blue sapphires and diamond pin on platinum over gold. Circa 1930’s.
Estate pin of pearls and old cut diamonds crescent pin. ┬áCirca 1930’s.
Zac Posen can totally carry this off
Blackamoor of onyx and rose cut diamonds on oxidized silver and gold.
Terrence Howard’s pin is a bit more spherical, might I suggest this pin?
1920’s circular pin of pearls and blue sapphires on 14k yellow gold.
Over the lapel, as a scarf pin or as a tie bar, these would look so cool, don’t you think?
As you can see they can also be worn by women so it is multi functional.
I think it’s about time we bring the dandy back!
