Decorative pins became vogue and soared in popularity due to George Brummel famously known as Beau, he was an English dandy man, companion to the Regency prince & fashion instigator of the early 18th century. George modernised the white stock, or cravat, that was the mark of the Eton boy & added a gold buckle to it. The adaptation of the buckle became a stick pin or tie pin.
