Jewelry for your instrument • A vintage material is reborn
Our ivoroid knobs, pins, and strap buttons are made of Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully. Popular in the early 20th century, Galalith is found today in collectible vintage jewelry. It cannot be molded; each pin is precisely machined and has none of the unsightly mold lines common to plastic pins.

Amber Buttons

Perfect fit on my Five-Star tuners. Great vintage look. Thanks for the fast shipping too.

Go Amber!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Just a little different--look old-time but I've never seen "amber" tuners of the 70 year old variety. Nice dash of color for my Reiter Vega-style Tubaphone. They fit well and are just a little "different" in an understated kind of way. Great replacements for the Pearloids that came with the banjo which just didn't fit the open-back, scooped ebony fingerboard.

Best Ivoroid Buttons I've Found

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Across the years I have picked up buttons from other sources. They didn't have the profile of these grained ivoroid buttons from Stewart MacDonald. These buttons have a smaller, less obtrusive shape to them. I needed to fit one to an odd 5th string peg and it was a breeze to work down.
