Stay grounded with a sterling silver anchor wax seal tie tack pin... not just for men since it makes a great lapel pin, jacket pin, hat pin, too!
The tie tack was first introduced back in the 1800's to keep the Four in Hand tie in place so that it wouldn't shift and wrinkle. Later, it became a very popular men's accessory, with all sorts of choices in design and material.
"A ship should not ride on a single anchor, nor life on a single hope"
