    Is anyone familiar with this site?

    http://overstockjeweler.com/cufflinks.html

    They claim their links are sterling and if they are as pictured it might be an interesting option. Note they make a point of stating their links are not imprinted with any designer or luxury brand name.

    hi, I would consider the price of their cufflinks a real steal but again. did anyone in this forum bought anything before from this store?

    As it turns out, I purchased a pair of the sterling 'Tiffany inspired' bead earrings for my wife, which I thought would work well as a test order:

    1/3 the price of the Tiffany equivalent.

    They match the sterling bead genuine Tiffany bracelet I purchased her awhile back. They just came in this week. I'll await her assessment when I give them to her tomorrow. From my initial inspection they seem to be fine. This place may work out very well for gifts for my wife...and for me! [​IMG]

    Have you had them appraised to determine if they're sterling silver?

    They have some designs I like (the Tiffany-like knot-shaped), let us know about your assessment !

    I would argue that these aren't worth anywhere near the prices the site is charging. Brand name aside, how much value is there in a pair of cufflinks?

    Knockoff Tiffany cufflinks can be purchased in China for $8 or less. They look to be the same quality as these and I suspect they come from the same factories. Picture of a few I got: http://img286.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pdr01734vg.jpg

    Sure, show us some pics. You're probably right about the cost, but I don't get to China very often.

    You're right. Maybe they are cheaper in China, but where do you think Tiffany and other name brands get their products from? You're just paying more for a Tiffany on the same $8 cufflinks.

    I like these for some real Godfather style:

    For wearing to bed, perhaps with your french cuff pajamas.

    I would be interested in confirmation that the links really are silver.

    When in NYC, go to Canal St and get sterling silver jewelry for excellent prices.
