    These are really great! Color is amazing!!...With respect to Appolyon I reduced the size of the photo a bit so that they're easier to see without having to scroll across such a large image (I hope you don't mind)

    Not at all. Here are some more pics (in reduced size) of some of the others in my collection:

    These have to be one of my favourites. Vintage Japanese jade:

    Vintage Krementz. One of the sides has had something heavy fall on it (can't see it in this pic) that needs to be fixed, wonder if a jeweler could do it.

    Roman Soldier theme. I suspect that these two have come from different pairs and have been matched together at a later stage as the blue and gold on the left cufflink are very dull compared to the right. If anyone has any advice on how I could bring out the lustre please let me know:

    Not sure whether it is onyx or not but the outer ring is enamel:

    And some more cufflinks for your viewing pleasure!

    Blue mother of pearl (I love this colour):

    Snap-links:

    These are probably my second favourite pair (after the enamelled peacock). Not sure what has caused the damage in the emanel, but I love them regardless:

    More snap-links:

    Tiger eye snap-links:

    [​IMG]

    Tri-colour snap-links:

    [​IMG]

    Blue domed glass:

    [​IMG]

    Sakura blue glass Kent Wang's. Not plugging his products but these have to be one of the most beautiful and unique cufflinks I have come across. I also own them in pink, but they just appear so dainty they spend most of their life being admired and not worn!

    [​IMG]

    I have also made a fair few new acquisitions that are making their way over to me and I'll post some pics when I receive them. I have a pair of enamelled 'Four Vices' coming to me that I really can't wait to receive!

    I particularly like the pair with the green metal underlay. They're like cufflinks ... of the future.

    Yeah, the green is a great...oh, I don't know, industrial color? I love that they're punched out like that.

    I really like these. They remind me of Mah Jong tiles.

    These are both stunning. Really really gorgeous. I've never seen blue MOP before.

    I picked up these deadstock Swank studs last week. When I wear them I can feel both swanky and studly. I paid $1.50:

    Tortoiseshell, supposedly Victorian era. I plan on adding a gold chain as I quite like these a lot.

    These are my two latest cufflink aquisitions from a recent trip to Newport. The first set is a pair of pre-1989 african elephant ivory hand-engraved scrimshaw cufflinks with 14k gold settings and swivels. The design is a wonderful nautical compass in blue (although it looks black in the pictures). The second pair is a set of handmade solid 18K gold Fratelli Piccini (goldsmiths from Florence) double sided seahorse cufflinks - I love these cufflinks! And yes - both are the most expensive pieces of jewelry I have purchased to date (not counting watches). I kind of went crazy on that trip. I am still waiting to find a pair of Tiffany 18K barbell cufflinks at a reasonable price (the 14K gold buttons in the 3rd pic are vintage Tiffany as are the sterling barbells).

    I just picked these up, don't know who made them but I'm told they're from the 1930's. I assume they're gold plated rather than gold but I liked them anyway.

    Here's a slightly better picture. So much for wanting to be the next David Bailey for a millisecond after college.
