Many a gentleman has adorned his wardrobe with a touch of color or interest: the odd pocket square, the boutonnière flower, or a brave tie. With the parade of somber business suits and the monotony of men’s formal wear, it’s easy to see why. Men are looking to add a bit of distinction to their wardrobe – recalling a time when being dapper was de rigueur. All that is left, then, is to find the perfect accent piece. Say hello to the man’s pearl: the pearl lapel pin.
Lapel pins date over a couple hundred years, but the accessory is enjoying a contemporary resurgence in interest and popularity. The pearl lapel pin in particular demands its own appeal. It is not flamboyant or pretentious; it is a quiet, meaningful luxury. The pearling industry is a champion of the environment and a herald of ecosystem health. Pearls’ individual, mussel-made character is a testament to the fickleness and fecundity of nature. There is no wonder why the pearl made its way onto a man’s lapel. Pearl lapel pins are the perfect combination of manliness and elegance.
