Handicrafts

Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Designer JewellerySummary: What is the accessory that defines the character of a man? There is something that men wear that is so small that many people overlook. What are they? Find out..

Cufflinks add a dash of class, a spark of charisma to a gray suit and tie. And high end cufflinks like gold or silver show the world that you have made it big and you are not afraid to show it.

For the Man Who Has Everything

Stefano Ricci has a collection of luxury cufflinks fit for a king, or maybe a major CEO. Prices are outrageous and only the super rich could afford them. A pair of yellow gold cufflinks embellished with diamonds sells for 9,250 Euros. Even silver cufflinks sell for 1000 Euros. These pieces of jewelry are meant for the man who can afford anything and wants the world to know it.

They Look Good and Won't Break Your Pocketbook

But for the average man or one who wants the look of luxury handmade cufflinks there are cheaper versions to choose from. Dolan Bullock sells sterling silver cufflinks from between $75 and $200. A popular metal used to make cufflinks is rhodium. It looks like silver and in fact is part of the platinum group of metals. It is durable and sells for much less than silver. For as little as $30 you can buy a pair of fashionable cufflinks plated with rhodium with original designs like the ace of spades, beer mugs, sailboat wheels, and electric guitars.

A Short History of Cufflinks

Luxury Fashion Jewellery DesignThe predecessor of cufflinks was cuff strings, which were found on 16th century shirt cuffs. During the reign of Louis XIV (1638 – 1715) shirt sleeves were fastened together with identical glass buttons fastened by a short linked chain. By 1715 these paste glass buttons were replaced by painted or jeweled studs, often diamonds which were connected by gold links, hence the name cuff links. Cufflinks evolved into a pair of disc shaped ornaments connected by a short post. The back end swivels into position to close the shirt cuff. By the nineteenth century cufflinks had become a popular item affordable now for the average middle class gentleman. They remained as the favored accessory to close a shirt cuff well into the twentieth century. Their popularity peaked in the 1960's when Swank Inc. a well known manufacturer was making 12 million a year and selling them for about $2.50.

The Return of Cufflinks

Since the 1960's cufflinks have declined in use but today they are making a comeback. Men all over the world wear them and they are made from all kinds of designs, from the classic gold or silver to plastic Disney characters. For those who like world records, the most expensive cufflinks ever sold were bought by Michael Jackson in 1996 for $39,750. They were made of gold and platinum and embedded with diamonds and sapphires. Cufflinks are making a comeback. Luxury cufflinks are just the thing to add a touch of class to your wardrobe.
