Beau Brummel is alive

Antique cufflinks with mother-of-pearl & diamonds, court jeweler Louis Weber, Cologne circa 1920

Beau Brummel (* 7 June 1778 in London; † 30 March 1840 in Caen, France) was the male style icon of the early 19th century. The epitome of the English dandy, he popularized a fashionable style that elevated sophisticated understatement to the highest level. His garments and accessories were restrained, yet always made of the best materials and perfectly crafted, and established the tradition of excellent men's outfitters who are still based on London's Savile Row today. Brummel used jewellery sparingly, however the few pieces he wore were always exquisite. The present pair of cufflinks, dating to around 1920, would certainly have appealed to him with their fine material composition and timeless understatement. The four uniformly shaped buttons each present a sparkling diamond in a broad frame of mother-of-pearl. An outer frame of platinum completes the buttons. The colours of the precious metal and the diamond complement the silvery grey of the mother-of-pearl beautifully, creating a harmonious overall impression. This timelessly stylish pair of cufflinks has been preserved in its original case. This is how we know that the pair was sold by the court jeweler Louis Weber in Cologne. The pair is very well preserved and came to us from Münster, Germany.
