Cufflinks

Cufflinks first seem to have been commonly worn from the 1600s onwards as mens tunics increasingly gave way to finer garments with collars and open fitting long-arm sleeves which required fastening. As time went on it became fashionable with royalty to have specially commissioned cufflinks made for weddings and other important occasions. By the start of the 1800 s they had become fairly common amongst gentry and included a range of materials, styles and designs. Everyday shirts of the period had sleeves which fastened by tying a piece of ribbon around an opposite button or pair of buttons. The cufflink as we know it had become commonplace amongst the upper classes by the mid 1800s when shirt collars and cuffs were starched to give gentlemens clothing a formal appearance. The cuffs were too stiff to be fastened by button alone and consequently modern-style cufflinks were necessary. Thanks to the industrial revolution mass production made them affordable to most men in a range of prices. Before his coronation King Edward VII wore coloured gemstone cufflinks by Faberge helping to increase their popularity as fashion accessories.

Cufflinks nowadays are very much in vogue with men increasingly taking a pride in their appearance. With many designs and styles on the market a mans cufflinks will say a great deal about him. All our Cufflinks at The Great Gift Shop come in ready-to-wrap presentation gift boxes (unless otherwise stated) and have been carefully selected for style, quality and value for money.
