Vintage 14K Gold Plated Adolfo Cufflink & Shirt Stud Set


CUFFLINKS: Long before post-Victorian social norms made it taboo for the 'ideal' man to enjoy lavish amounts of jewelry, cufflinks were just one of the ways that men decorated their outfits. The earliest documented cufflinks come from the 17th century and were largely limited to the highest social strata.

These small, bejeweled accoutrements fell out of favor for a few centuries until a resurgence in the 19th century with the creation of the French cuff - a product of a Victorian age that was fond of starch. The stiff, rectangular cuff marked gentlemen around Europe, America and the Commonwealth and needed to be pinned closed with a cufflink.

FEATURES: This is a handsome set of 14K gold plated men’s cufflinks and shirt studs with black accents. The 1970s set comes in the original box with the original tag marked “14K GOLD PLATED.”

DIMENSIONS: Each cufflink is approximately 5/8” in diameter and each shirt stud is approximately 3/16” in diameter.

CONDITION: This set of cufflinks and shirt studs is in excellent condition.
