First of all, let's start from the raw material of the lapel pin
. Usually precious metals such as pure gold and sterling silver are not the common materials for the lapel pin manufacture. The first choice for the materials of high-class lapel pin
should be copper, especially rose copper which is so called red copper. Because the material of rose copper is relatively soft, it's relatively easy to make a variety of characters or patterns on it. In addition, copper also has the excellent mechanical functions like strong corrosion resistance, wear resistance and forgeability. Thus the copper is the first priority material for the high-class lapel badges.
Secondly, the manufacturing process is also one of the key factors that determine whether a badge is high-class or not. Generally speaking, for any high-class goods, the manufacturing process will be relatively complicated. The hard enamel is one of the most complex processes in the manufacture of badges, so the hard enamel badge (cloisonné badge) is a genuine high-class lapel badge. Because the manufacture and appearance of imitation hard enamel badge (soft cloisonné badge) is similar to the manufacture of real hard enamel, the imitation hard enamel badges can also be regarded as high-class lapel badges. However, the manufactures of printed badges, photo etched badges, epoxy badges and soft enamel badges are relatively simple. Therefore those badges can only be regarded as ordinary badges. Especially for the badges which are made of stainless iron, aluminum, tin, alloy and other materials, perfectly suit the customers who have special requirements for the relative or limited budget. In addition, the design of lapel pin and the accessories of lapel pin will also affect the quality of finished item. As for a real high-class lapel pin, its design (style, etc.) must also be reasonable and high-class. In terms of accessories, usually they will be selected from high-class parts, such as US safety pins, tie tack etc. and the package will be wooden box, velvet box and the like. Definitely, the attachment of the badge would be chose accordingly depends on its relative usage.

What’s more, for the hard enamels badge or imitation hard enamel badge, it should be burnished by stone right after coloring to make sure the color to be full enough and flush with the raised metal. Also, the silver soldering for the accessories, the tie plating for the electroplate color, the real plating instead of painting for the antique effect etc., all those are the necessary processes and basic standards for the manufacture of a high-class lapel badge.
