    Thanks very much. Cufflinks were from Vintage Times at the Sydney Antiques Centre in Surry Hills. Watch came from Ebay.

    Nothing particularly as elegant as the ones that I've seen here, but I saw these handmade ones on Etsy and fell in love with them.

    I was thinking of wearing them with a white shirt, and I've a tanned/olive complexion, so I figured they would go well with my skin tone.

    Any suggestions on matching ties/jackets?

    Some recent acquisitions ...

    Art Deco gold tone

    Garnet and sterling silver.

    Opals in gold tone setting. These were my father's - my mum gave them to me for my birthday. They probably date from the '70s, at a guess

    ^^^Those blue ones are gorgeous. (Nothing wrong with the all silver either [​IMG]) But the blues are just really nice.

    Here's a pair I found at the Baltimore Summer Antiques Show in August. I don't know much about them. I think they're gold plated.

    For the record, and for anyone in the area, Missing Link from NYC were there, as were a couple other dealers with great selection. And that jerk from upstate NY who won't put prices on his stuff which requires you to ask him every time. And I'm sure he's not only judging his price but your gulliblity.

    I thought I'd share with you my cufflink collection.

    Most are by Wedgwood (the first 3 rows), the world renown pottery company from Stoke-on-Trent in the UK. They are all Jasperware. The second row are all by Stephen Webster the award winning silversmith, for Wedgwood. I haven't seen any Wedgwood on SF before.
