Replicated from screen-used and production-made rank devices, these hand-made and hand-assembled rank uniform jewelry devices ("pips") are fully metal, using rare-Earth magnets in both the individual pip and backing device. Each pip is distinctively weathered, replicating the look first introduced in Star Trek™: The Next Generation. With this offering, the mainstay uniform devices of the 24th century have been brought into the 21st.
