In this day and age, cufflinks are one of the few remaining pieces of jewelry for the gentleman. They can be used to make a small fashion statement on the sleeves - and in general, a dignified pair of cufflinks is so much more stylish than plain plastic shirt buttons. The present pair of cufflinks from the last years of the 19th century captivates with the elegance of the materials used here and the unusual design: a white old-cut diamond in a frame of platinum occupies the center of each of the round fronts. Around them unfolds a quatrefoil of fine leaf ornaments, revealing the formal language of historicism. The frontal decorative knobs are connected to the pin-shaped knobs with small chains, giving them a nice mobility. The pair is crafted from high karat gold with an additional fine gilding. As a result, the surface shimmers with a rich, silky luster. The buttons are first class workmanship, very well preserved and a decidedly stylish focal point on the shirt.

As early as the 16th century, the forerunners of our present-day shirts were created, whose sleeves could be tied together with a silk ribbon. Although silk cuff bands remained popular until the 19th century, from the time of Louis XIV onward, sleeve endings were increasingly closed with boutons de manchette, or cufflinks, typically pairs of colored glass buttons connected by a short chain. During the graduated 18th century, these glass buttons were replaced by elaborately painted pieces or pairs set with precious stones. At that time, cufflinks were widespread as distinct luxury items mainly in aristocratic circles In the first half of the 20th century, cufflinks also peaked in popularity among the middle classes, and in the last 10 years, cufflinks have experienced a noticeable upswing, as many fashion designers are once again paying greater attention to accessories, and thus, fortunately, more shirts with cuffs are being sewn again. Nowadays, cufflinks are one of the few pieces of jewelry that can adorn men. Make a fashion statement on your sleeves - a dignified pair of cufflinks made of luxurious material is so much more stylish than plain plastic shirt buttons!
