Story

In the 1700s cufflinks or sleeve buttons (as they were known at the time) were more than just a replacement for the ribbons or ties which formerly held together the shirt cuffs of a gentleman. By the 18th century these jewels symbolized luxury, self-adornment and elegance. Wearing a pair clearly separated “thems that gots from thems that don’t”.

Hand faceted clear white pastes have been foiled and set closed back into pinched collet mounts of silver. The silver setting is the perfect foil for the very white and shimmering paste gems. The ever clever Georgian jewelers crafted a wondrous pair of double sided cufflinks by attaching a bale to each “cuff button” and linking them together with an ingeniously designed open work plaque of a honeycomb pattern. The pair is all original from the connectors to the foil.
