This piece is from the 1950's I believe. It is 2 ¾" in length and 3/8" in width. It has a mauve pink faux moonstone in the center of a gold tone tie barTie clips are designed to keep men's ties straight and neat and out of your food when eating. The tie clip has surged back into acceptability amongst gentlemen with style and flair. . Check out the pictures on this beautiful accessory.
