I'm selling some of our fathers' old jewelry. Can someone tell me the difference between tie bar and tie clip? I know about tie pins, and have some to sell, but the other definition eludes me.

And is there a technical name for those little chains that hang off some of the tie bars/clips?

A tie clip is the thing that holds your tie to your shirt.

A tie bar is an upper piece of your car that your cars radiator is attached.

Here is one that happens to be upside down.

Gawd, Stone! My ob-gyn has one of those, stirrups and all.

I'm serious now. I NEED to know why you guys call those things tie clips OR tie bars. I've seen both in men's jewelry on Ebay. Cough up!
