Where can I find cufflinks like these?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm a new member on Style Forum

I'm looking for some traditional english cufflinks, linked by a chain, either in gold or silver tones. My budget is 220GBP, I could scrap a bit more money together if needed. I am not looking for the cheap solution, I need the high quality solution!

Can anyone help? I've always been wondering where figures such as Prince Charles, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princes of Hohenlohe, Lord Wess etc... buy their cufflinks, some of them are really amazing!

Thanks!



(These cufflinks are just amazing! In fact I wish I could find cufflinks like these.)

Suggestions for other classic and elegant cufflinks are also welcome, but remember, chain cufflinks only, thanks!

I bought a pair of Chain cufflinks from Hamilton Jewelers. I would suggest looking in jewelry stores that have a vintage or estate collection.

Hello, unfortunately I am in a little village, so either I will need to see something on the web or if you give me the name of a brand or jeweler I will ask them to send me their catalogue. I'd prefer gold or gold colored cufflinks to match my signet ring, unfortunately it seems most shops sell silver or white gold. Since I am stuck in Paris for a few days (Because of that Volcano cloud) I decided to take a look around and went to a lot of shops such as Brooks Brothers France, Cartier, Bulgari, Edmond de Montesal etc... But I didn't find anything interesting. Any ideas? I would really love to find cufflinks that are similar to Charles' on this picture!

Yeah, ebay seems to be a good source. One needs to be patient and keep looking there to come across some nice finds.
OP - does this seem like something you would be interested in? It's a 14k gold double sided cufflink.

Also, here's a recent thread on AAAC that might be of interest to you.

Thank you gentlemen, unfortunately ordering something from eBay US means a lot of shipping fees, do you have any other ideas? Also I wouldn't agree that His Royal Highnesses cufflinks are art nouveau, if you look closely you will see a greek/roman inspired relief.

Allready did, nohing interesting unfortunately. I was thinking about bespoke but I guess Fiona Rae will be out of my price range will she? (For enamel cufflinks with my armorial bearings that would be!)

If not, you could buy regular cufflinks (good quality at lower prices) and have a jeweler convert them into chained links. Just make sure one of the ends fits through your cuff holes. It's gold so it shouldn't bee too difficult for a jeweler to do.

Michael has a great assortment.
my issue as a shirtmaker with double sided chain lings, is that there is much more space and the cuffs tend to look too large as in the photo.
they will hang down as well.

Your budget is going to limit you to 9ct and fairly light-weight:

£90:

Much better and only a little over budget:

Unless you want to go secondhand and are prepared to put the spadework into digging, 18ct is likely to be £700 and upwards.

It doesn't need to be gold as long as its not gold painted or plated, it can be a golden colour aswell, I'd love to find something like Charlie's got.
