I am an avid shopper for cufflinks—traveling around the world, perusing the collections of private collectors and vintage jewelry merchants. I do not go out of my way to seek-out women's jewelry. Instead, I just stumble across a lot of it while inspecting cufflinks. When I see a piece I like, I will often pick it up.
This English Arts & Crafts hand-hammered pewter cuff is punctuated with three jade glass cabochons. This type of craftwork was popular in the British Arts & Crafts period, mostly employed to create pin-on brooches. I have never seen another wrist cuff such as this. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
