At the risk of looking stupid - are these cufflinks (pic)?

    The inside of whatever these things read "Colibri Japan". Now these came with a box full of cuff links/tie clips and pins that were bought from an auction.

    I am not sure if these are cufflinks or what they are.

    Anyone know?

    Is the part that connects the two sides a hinge? If so, I think that they are button covers. You slip the part with the hole underneath the button and clasp the top over.

    It's a way of making a button cuff look like a french cuff. Normally, they look pretty tacky, but I've seen worse than those.

    Actually you are exactly right they are button covers! These don't actually look too bad I guess, but I don't know why on earth someone would wear these to make a normal cuff shirt a little more formal..
