They are beautiful your Majesty!
the million dollar question, how much?
They are beautiful, but look very expensive IMO (If that is the look you are going for).
I loved these cufflinks... they are So beautiful..and ya looks very expensive too.
Go for it if you have to choose one.
Very good craftsmanship -- but too flashy for my taste. What will you wear it with?
Though not always in agreement with Alan Flusser, I do concur with his comment:
"Cuff links with stones, even colored ones such as rubies, emeralds and sapphires, were traditionally frowned upon as day wear and usually reserved as black tie as part of a set of studs with matching links. In the light of day, such a display would still be considered somewhat ostentatious, although they can certainly be worn after dark to accompany a dressy business suit."
Second on the flashiness. It just has too much of a bling effect for me and I can't imagine many situations where I would be comfortable wearing that.
They're beautiful but I wouldn't buy them even if I could spare the amount of money required to buy them.
Looks like excellent workmanship.
Liberace would have loved them.
I like these cufflinks. But like JensenH said, it's too flashy. Lovely craftsmanship, but how much exactly?
As objects, they're lovely - as cufflinks to be worn on a regular basis - much too bling-y.
Definitely too bling-y for normal occasions.
I also really like them. I'd echo the sentiment about being too flashy but I would probably buy a pair (depending on Price) if there was a circular metal insert with a smaller stone set in the center. Less flash, still maintain that beautiful look and cool setting
Guys - will get feedback regarding pricing from my jeweler. This can be done more casual, less "blingy," as these are indeed very fancy (and expensive, as there is gold and a lot of handwork).
If there is interest in a pair, or bespoke cufflinks, let me know, and I can put you in touch with my craftsman.
Also - I was thinking of a "styleforum" limited edition - something like the back on both sides with center moderately sized lapis stone. Anyone interested in that?
A bit flashy!
