These are an outstanding pair of antique cuff links from the era when elegant gentlemen and aristocrats vied with one another in the fashion stakes. Only a few pieces of jewellery were considered acceptable for a true gentleman as opposed to a dandy. Elegant cuff links were one of the most significant pieces in a gentleman’s jewellery box.
