WHAT IS A TIE BAR

ORIGINS OF A TIE BAR
A tie pin was originally worn by wealthy English gentlemen to secure the folds of their “cravats*”
The cravat* is a neckband, the pioneer of the modern necktie and bow tie, originating from a style worn by members of the seventeenth-century military unit
Tie pins were first popularized at the beginning of the 19th century, tie pins commonly used pearls and other precious gemstones set in gold or other precious metals and were designed specifically for their owners.
