very expensive

Yes I think the prices are high.  I liked the stirrup style cufflinks without the gems.  I normally stick with the traditional cufflinks as I find many cufflinks especially themes to be too cute or silly for my taste.   I can't help but I am sure some forum members could probably give you names of artists that could reproduce the cufflinks at a much lower cost.  There are reported to be some great jewelry makers in Bangkok.  Can anyone give some guidance?  This could be great advice for members getting ready to make a jewerly purchase for Christmas for a wife or girlfriend. I always thought if I was buying jewelry Bangkok would be a great place to do it.  As with most purchases I am sure you want a reputable vendor.

Longmire is the premier custom cufflink maker in the world. It's the place to go if you need gold links with enameled images of your favorite horse. Most of what they sell is made to order, and they price accordingly. Will

These cufflinks are not bespoke. What justifies so high prices?

Longmire is a specialist in cufflinks. Their stirrup model is quite famous.

Those RTW cufflinks are quite expensive since a few are in gold, some (semi-precious) gems, and the handwork required to create them.

Bah, I'd rather go for a pair of modest, double-sided, sterling silver cufflinks. You can easily find those on eBay for under $50.

Expensive = 3 or 4 times the price of a pair of the same metal anywhere

If Ernest or anyone else can post contact information for jewellers who for a third or a quarter the price can craft cufflinks comparable in quality of design and workmanship, I'm certain that we would flock to them.

Dunhill during sales (easy to find) = 4 times less than their silvers links.

Dunhill's cufflinks are not as well made as Longmire's. Firstly that Dunhill is not a jeweller. The only comparable houses would be Cartier, Boucheron, etc.

For a simple squared cuff in silver, no need to see a jeweller, silver is the same and look also. Can not compare to Cartier which makes very hard to do jewels, not just links.
