Cufflinks For Your Men

Cufflinks are an elegant gift for men and recently, they have started to become popular again.  It’s as though they have been rediscovered.

I have always thought that cufflinks add a touch of class to a man’s styling and I enjoy seeing that flash of gold or silver on his shirt cuff.

Cufflinks are the decorative way to fasten a shirt cuff but they are only suitable for shirts which have buttonholes on both sides of the sleeve and no buttons.  They can’t be worn with standard shirts because they only have the buttonhole on one side.

There is a decorative side to a cufflink and a closure stud.  The decorative side can be plain metal but often it is decorated with stones or other images.  Ours have flat clean surfaces ready to hold the memories you have chosen.

Our rhodium cufflinks are available in oval or square shapes and we have selected these because the plates give ample room to add a clear etched image on top.  You can have a different image or text on each plate, too. The cufflinks come giftboxed and also include free regular postage Australia wide.

If your man has never worn cufflinks before he might be a little unsure about how to wear them.  This short video clip will show him exactly how to add them to his cuff and how to make sure they look fantastic.

An Elephant Never Forgets

“An elephant never forgets.”  You must have heard this old piece of wisdom from your parents or grandparents at some point in your life. If you are not convinced in the truth of this statement, you must watch the video below.  It’s a lovely story of remembering across time.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for humans.  Our memory is not nearly as good as the elephant, so we tend to forget a lot of things throughout our lives. On one hand, this is an advantage, because we can leave some bad memories in the past. On the other hand, however, we sometimes lose moments we would like to remember for a lifetime.

Luckily, there is a way to remember those special times in your life.  A great way to preserve beautiful memories is to engrave them on your jewellery. Of course, we have all heard of pieces of jewellery engraved with text and a lot of people would refer to ‘one ring to rule them all’ from the ‘Lord of the Rings’, but now you can have something more – jewellery with a photo engraved on it and bound to remain there forever.

Of course, you can choose any photo you like; your favourite one, or the one that reminds you strongly of a pleasant moment. Then you can have it engraved on a pendant or other piece of jewellery and never worry that it may fade away.  It will bring memories as long as you wear it. This is your chance to turn a piece of jewellery into your personal memory keeper – always there to remind you of your chosen favourite moment.

This is, perhaps, one of the best ways to preserve a photo with a favourite memory.  Rest assured that it will help you think of the good times and special people whenever you need it.
