History: Tie bars, or tie clips, are usually made of metal and house a small pendant.  Tie bars were often used as a precautionary against strangulation, as white-collar workers who worked near machinery traditionally wore ties to work everyday.  The trend evolved with the center gemstone or pendant becoming grander or more exquisite denoting social stature.
