► HOW TO!? Pin to your tie to keep it from swaying and add an unforgettable decorative accent to your outfit. 

  • Insert the T-bar through the third buttonhole on your shirt.
  • Push the pointed post through your tie
  • Insert the post into the clutch hanging from the chain. Hold the clutch with your fingertips and slide the post into it.
  • Now you’re sorted! The chain will live behind the tie and keep it from swinging.
  • When pinning: don’t stretch or pull your tie tight, instead, allow it to hang naturally so it doesn’t bunch up or create a larger hole when you push the post through it.
  • Can’t pierce your nose or ear at work? Be a tie-piercing rebel! Yep, whenever you use a tie pin, there will be a small hole in your tie. After wearing, you can gently steam the little hole with an iron, to make it shrink a bit. (Please do not steam your nose or ear or anything else you may have pierced already.)
► ABOUT THE STONE: Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. These cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago. Ammonites lived in the seas near what are now the called the Mahajanga and Tulear regions of Madagascar.
