The 1999 ones (they actually flip between 1999 and 2000) were a novelty from Paul Smith for Y2K (remember back that far?). One of my colleagues bought them, then gave them to me, as he had no use for them after the event, and I've kept them as a curiosity. I've never worn them.

I was right! Haha! I follow your WAYWT posts far too closely to know what you are likely to wear and not. uhoh.gif

wow, I was so excited to see this thread!

Very nice collection. I particularly like the scarabs and the blue ovals with orange flower (fleur de lys?)

The vintage Shields links were my late father's, of which I took possession after his death in 2004. I keep them for sentimental value, as I remember him wearing them (most likely the late 60's to mid 70's). If I'm ever called upon to attend a "Mad Men" theme party I may wear them.

Both scarabs and the blue/orange fleur de lys cufflinks come from museums - the scarabs (double-sided - silver-gilt on one side, silver on the other) from the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and the fleurs de lys from the Met in NYC.

Hopefully this will become a "Cufflink Collection Thread" I hope to make a post, although, it will be nothing like what you have shog[1].gif

Good stuff, Señor Crust!

Fantastic! I have a little over one of those large boxes full, myself. Most of them have stories as well. About half of them I inherited from my father, a pair from my grandfather, presents, glass from Murano, etc. I certainly understand the feeling that each one has its own story! Again, fantastic collection!
