Jewelry for the Man in Your Life

All too often when we think of jewelry, we think of ladies. But here at Vintages we have not forgotten jewelry for men. The well dressed gentleman sports a variety of adornments from rings and cuff links to tie pins and bracelets. We have a nice variety of all of these items, and more ...
This photo of Benjamin Shambaugh (Founder of the Organization of American Historians) shows the well-dressed man of the early 1900s. He has a tie pin and a French cuff shirt with cuff links. (Photo from our files.)
Two late-Victorian gentlemen. The one on the left is wearing both a tie pin and a tie bar. The man on the right has a watch chain attached to the middle button of his vest.
The Victorian gentleman had many jewelry items from which to choose. We have a collection of watch chains, tie pins and cuff links from the period.
Watch chains made from a variety of metals ($18 to $69 each)
Tie pins or stickpins from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These range in price from $18 to $95, depending on the metal and stone in the design.
A collection of Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Mid-century Modern cuff links (from $42 each)
Tie bars and clasps, rings and cuff links from the mid-20th century are also in our inventory.
