Election Jewelry

Every four years a "new jewelry craze" sweeps the United States, And, jewelry bearing the Donkey or Elephant motif ranging from tie-tacs and cufflinks to hat pins and belt buckles is highlighted in trade journals and sold in jewelry stores and boutiques everywhere. Purse pins and earrings to bracelets and necklaces begin to grace the American Public along with the popular classic campaign pin making voting fashionable.

Brooches and collage pins are also worn but because of the short time frame involved, the simple tack pin or classic campaign buttons are the fastest to develop and distribute and been the cornerstone of many presidential fundraising campaigns. Many campaign buttons, including campaign buttons without pin backs are becoming collectors items.

These jewelry items range from the simplest and most inexpensive lapel pins with a single donkey or elephant motif to charms and cufflinks, encrusted with diamonds and other gemstones, costing thousands of dollars. These sometimes elaborate pieces of campaign jewelry frequently got re-worn from election to election and became valuable collectables or family heirlooms.

Guyot Brothers brass elephant and donkey charms have been used in the making of Presidential campaign jewelry for more than 50 years.
