The History Of Cufflinks

Vermeil Stud Design Cufflinks

Curiosity on how these fashionable jewelry became a hit led me to some digging and research, to find these little interesting facts on the history of Cufflinks! Well, it all started with the mere solution to not dipping clothing sleeves into thier wine or soup, men between 1738-1820 became obsessed with their very own version of Cufflinks called “Cuff Button”. At that time, they were made of precious metals, decorated with valuable stones or even fully designed of crystals. These pieces of luxury were only ‘reserved’ for the rich as the ordinary people could not afford it. After the 60’s revolution of the XIX Century, things changed and these buttons were made of cheaper metals and even polished in gold or silver. In 1882, George Krements invented a mass producing machine for cufflinks and therefore these small but attractive men jewelry became a fashion trend, still up and running till today!

Another provoking fact was during the XX Century, Cufflinks were considered a gift of sheer luxury and esteem. For instance, the Russian Empress, Maria Feodorovna arranged for cufflinks shaped like cicadas by faberge, when she was challenged to present a beautiful, unique, solid thing.

Wow, this sure does perk up a desire to own more cufflinks or even consider personalized cufflinks as a solid, luxurious gift to present to the people we care about!
