Why cufflinks must never be taken for granted

Why cufflinks must never be taken for granted

By Robin Dutt

Often the last resort of the last minute gift hunter, cufflinks must never been taken for granted.  And more and more men of style are realising their potency.  Of course the discreet, almost anonymous (yawn) silver or gold examples are daily musts but there is a panoply of delightful examples available – even in the most unexpected places.  Shoot a cuff with a dash.  Double cuff of course.  The wonderful thing about these jewels is that they can remain hidden unless you wish to display.  Longmire has long created wonderful animal inspired pieces, exquisitely crafted and Stephen Webster’s Gothic owls and Pop Art word explosions, for example, a radiant star on one side and a word bubble as a foil in a lavishly polished silver are magnetic.  Of course, intrinsically. There is nothing at all wrong with the plain silver or gold ovals.  But so much is out there from Paul Smith finds to the finds YOU find in the bottom of your less visited drawer. Ah…that gift you thought you’d never wear…
