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