    Maybe for their obsceneness and provenience...? The gold we wear could have immense histories- it could have been consecutively in an Egyptian tomb, around a monarch's neck and a Nazi stronghold...

    Silver; gold plated on the back:

    My jeweller just sent me a digital mock-up of the cufflinks he'll be making me.

    Burmese jade
    Diamonds

    Question: Should I have the cufflinks crafted in this blend of gold and silver colour, or would it look better if it's entirely in gold?

    I think entirely in silver would look best. Entirely in gold is better than the blend though IMO

    Thanks guys. Going for white gold (or rhodium plated silver).

    Received these two pictures in the mail. They'll make it up in wax, and then cast it. When I first saw it in my mail I thought they had made the cufflinks entirely out of jade.

    I was in my friends shop in the Rockridge area of Oakland today. He is a jewelry and home decor designer from Paris (where he did projects for many luxury brands). These are his new cuff links. Available at Le Kube + Studio Oakland:
