As we’ve said before, a few well-placed trinkets can be the best way to bring a suit down to earth. The trick is finding a trinket that’s every bit as handsome as your suit.

Well, we’ve found one. It’s a studio exclusive lapel pin from Occulter, made from gold and 80-year-old piano ivory. The key point: when you open it up, you’ll have room for a pair of scrimshawed initials and one of those locket photos you’ve see in movies. It’s gentlemanly style circa 1800, which isn’t something you come across every day.

And if you’ve incurred the wrath of your significant other recently—or plan on doing so in the near future—it’s not a bad peace offering.
