I was in Erwin Pearl today, on Worth Ave and I perused several sterling silver cufflinks with single and multiple mother of pearl inlays. Decent prices from $115 for a simple single-piece MOP cufflink to $195 for an 8-piece MOP cufflink (the multi-piece was rather large). Then I wondered down to Cartier and saw their new collection of cufflinks. One in particular was quite nice, sterling silver with a screw type MOP inlaid bar, for $475. The Cartier seemed to be of slightly better quality than that of the Erwin Pearl. Although I am not sure if more than twice the price really justifies the cost. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated (now I wish I had not paid so much attention to watches and learned something about jewelry...) Jon.
