post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i recently began bidding and purchasing vintage cufflinks on ebay..i seem to be attracted mostly to enamel types(double-sided and snap type)..it's so easy to become addicted to these little beauties..thankfully i have some french cuff shirts so i can wear them..however i find myself starting to accumualte more of them than i have the opportunity to wear..i'm now looking for some kind of box(preferably with glass top for viewing) to store/display them in..any suggestions? so far i've found these http://www.cufflinks.com/micucoca.html http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ViewItem&rd=1&item=4951934581&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

What I want to see are some links (pardon the pun) to some of the cufflinks you won. (Wise choice on double sided and snap.) I've generally been more attracted to sterling links, which you can get for a steal on ebay, too. Cuffthis keeps telling me I need some enamel links (and I do, of course ), but they don't have quite the same appeal to me. I do need to try some white gold. Getting back to cases, I suppose ernest would point out that you don't want your links to roll about and scratch each other. Finding a good case is difficult. I'm going to "need" one before long, too.

My conversation with cufflinks.com, I am still waiting for a reply... My last answer = I picked up the small model 1 month ago and I can say that the fabrics is not "havy velvet" and not even gunuine velvet. How can you explain this? Cufflink's reply = It is the same lining, but both are sold out. They will be back in stock in January. Thanks Ravi Cufflinks.com No reply, so I send the same message back 2 weeks later My original message = > > Sent: Monday, November 29, 2004 5:55 PM > > Subject: Question about boxes > > Hello, > > > > > > Are these 2 boxes the same (same leather, velvet) in different sizes ? > > > > Why is it written "heavy velvet" about the second and nothing about the > > first? > > > > > > Regards

I also bid on ebay for silver cufflinks. Most go for low $20s plus s/h. I have bought over 100 in the last 18 months with only one bad transaction from a scam artist in France. As a result of adding these links to the couple hundred I already had, my wife came up with a very innovative storge system. Last Xmas she bought me a chinese siver breakfront , about 4 feet tall. It has six drawers, lined in velet and partioned with three divisions. I can keep everything in it, seperated by design. I great addtion to keeping everything together.

I have someone who is interested in testing the market for custom wood cufflink, watch, and jewelry display / storage boxes. I am trying to get him to get some pics of his projects up on the net so people can get an idea of what he's capable of. The workmanship and detail is just insane; he is picky about things that 99% of people would never notice or care about (sound familiar?). These would be full custom, so they would be above the price range of the ones posted so far. If anyone is interested, reply here, or PM me about it. This is not what he normally works on so the lead time might be a while, but you would be able to specify everything about the box, match your existing cabinetry, or whatever.

Damn you. Damn to you to hell. I have enough addictions already and now you introduce enamel cufflinks into the mix. I just started buying cuff links last month...I had hoped it wouldn't be the start of a new regular expense but I'm in too deep now to stop. Sigh. At any rate, I've been looking for a storage means myself but haven't been satisfied with anything I've found to date.

Box is correct for the price, but their velvet is no velvet and they do not answer anymore... I do not like yours boxes because cufflinks are free (will touch each other) or under an elastic (not practical) and a white lining (not practical & not the best to offset the links)

I do not know. I had many difficulties to find my box.

I keep a lot of my cufflinks in a map chest. These have 8-10 real low height drawers that are perfect for storing cufflinks. They can usually be found in most antique stores for $200 - $300. You can easily store 300 pairs in these, which is plenty for most people.

I have this box and I've been quite happy with it -- don't know if cufflinks.com still sells it, though...
