We're celebrating the summer by sharing a collection of "sunny" cufflinks—little reminders on-the-cuff of the brightness and warmth which may leave with the season, but will always come back again.
Swirling rays of light—from the needles of a machine-turned etching machine—rise within the framed octagons of these Art Deco cufflinks from the Thirties. Though not marked with a specific gold content, many cufflinks of this quality had at least a small amount of gold in the alloy—or was finished with a layer of gold (or an alloy containing some gold). This is what has kept the cufflinks so bright after so many decades. This pair was made in Providence, Rhode Island, once the center of commercial jewelry production in the United States. Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
We have recently added a cache of new cufflinks to our website—and have many more pairs to add in the weeks to come. Please click here to see the entire range of cufflinks for sale at LEO Design.
More radiant, sunny cufflinks tomorrow and in the days to come.
