Victorian Refinement - VIII


Victorian English Gold-Content Mounded-Oval Cufflinks (LEO Design)


Queen Victoria reigned from 1837 to 1901—an era well-represented in our collection of handsome cufflinks.  For the rest of the month, we'll be sharing some of these Victorian cufflinks offerings, many of them recently acquired.  Click here to see all of the cufflinks at LEO Design. 

Though made in the Victorian 1890's, these cufflinks have a handsome Georgian sensibility: simple, restrained, elegant.  The "mounded" oval forms are polished but otherwise left clean—making them suitable for the engraving of a monogram.  Although unmarked, they have some gold content of unknown percentage.  Monogramed or not, they would provide a classic, understated closure to your shirt cuffs.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
