Black and Gold

lion-man coat of arms pin, cameo and wreath ring, and black rose stick pin, all vintage
In my younger years, I’d often shun the combination of black and gold; in my mind it was gaudy, and my princely pipe dreams had not yet manifested. There is a warmth and opulence to the marriage of the two colors, and in tiny touches, fine or faux—say, a pin on a plain suit, or a ring with thermals and jeans—they make daily wear that much more debonair.

    A pin on a suit is a subtle way to really show personal style.
