What Are Cufflinks?
Cufflinks became popular in the 1800’s and were a way for men to fasten their shirt cuffs in style, the more decadent and expensive your cufflinks, the higher your status in society. Since then, and a benefit from the industrial revolution, meant that cufflinks were more accessible in every price range. In more recent year’s, cufflinks have become a way to express your style and personality, dress for formal occasions or business wear or as a special gift for a loved one.
How to pick the perfect pair
One factor to consider is your metal type, this will of course have some impact on the price. 18ct gold, the most luxurious, comes at the highest price point, but also consider they are made to last for generations to come. Base metal is our lowest price point, still made to the highest quality but of a more affordable material. A pair of cufflinks should be purchased as an investment – most of these luxury items become prised family heirlooms. Most of all your personal style and personality is key to finding the right cufflinks.
