They were the only sterling ones I could find that didn't also incorporate airplanes, like these:

Here are a couple non-sterling versions:

I want to share with you guys my cufflinks.

These were my first pair of cufflinks. My stepfather gave these vintage ones to me, when I was 16.
I was not to crazy about them, but had to wear since I didn't have any others. However, people at work, and around were giving me compliments. As i matured up I started appreciate more and more their simplicity, versatility and elegance. You got silver, black onyx, mother of pearl, and something brown, not sure what stone.

To me these are upgraded version of your basic silver ones, since they will go as with black as with brown shades.

I really like those.

I'd think accounts are welcome on the abucus front too.

Hey, guys, does anyone remember the OTHER cufflink thread? The one with the shots of the link, shirt cuff, watch, etc.? I can't seem to find it via search.

As far as I know, this has been the only "real" cuff link thread.

Went to the Art Deco Society of Washington expo and sale this weekend. I saw exactly one cufflink that appealed to me. Note, I said one: it had no mate. Sad.

I've seen that blog before. Beautiful stuff (and showing some gorgeous art nouveau links right now). But the prices for the stuff he's selling on that other page are f-ing ridiculous. I have a funny feeling that he tells everyone he buys and sells cufflinks, but really he just collects them and can't bear to part with them.

Wow, such beautiful cuff links. I'll be in India this July, and I'm going to see if I can get some custom cuff links made. Those cuff links have given me some interesting ideas.

Meh. I'm just NOT a fan of the early Deco stuff. THESE TWO aren't bad... I'm more a Scandinavian / Modernist, .925 silver, 40s-50s kinda guy.
post #987 of 1136
And, BTW, fellas. When it comes to .925 silver, it ain't patina. It's TARNISH.

I bought these today from ebay. Yes, I work @ a trading desk

I've actually working on a somewhat similar grotesque cuff link, double-sided of course. Hopefully available in a month or two.

Let us know when they're in -- can I get a pre-order in?


New kirin antiqued brass cuff links

 

New kirin antiqued brass cuff links $45

They’re based off a door knocker I found at Chi Lin Monastery in Hong Kong.

5266582450_ccbfa6c5f7.jpg

Well, I’m not entirely sure it’s a kirin, but it’s the best that I can guess. It may just be an unspecific monster.

Fun facts about the kirin from Wikipedia:

Quote:

Although it looks fearsome, the kirin only punishes the wicked. It can walk on water, and can walk on grass yet not trample the blades. As it is a peaceful creature, its diet does not include flesh. It takes great care when it walks never to tread on any living thing, and it is said to appear only in areas ruled by a wise and benevolent leader. It is normally gentle but can become fierce if a pure person is threatened by a sinner, spouting flames from its mouth and exercising other fearsome powers.

 

The design is hand-carved; no fancy-shmancy CAD was used. Antiqued brass gives it a nice patina.
