18K yellow gold over sterling silver Bee pin is worn in both Women’s and Men’s fashion. Created in 925 sterling silver and then plated in yellow 18K gold in a high mirror polish, with lustrous craftsmanship and luminosity, it is worn as either a tie pin or a lapel pin. It measures 1 3/8 inches wide by 3/4 inches high by 5/8 inches deep. The bee is suspended on reverse with a base metal pin and clutch closure.
The “Bee” is representative of the extended Whitney family, and the hive as symbolic of the Whitney Museum, a home for artists and art lovers;
the real beehive located on the rooftop of the Whitney Museum produces “Flora” honey, which “sweetens” the art world and our daily lives.
