Although diminutive in size, men's cufflinks add a special touch to any man's wardrobe. They're not just for tuxedos, either. The first cufflinks were decorative buttons, attached back to back with a chain, and they were widely used in Europe in the 1600s, especially Great Britain. Crafted in silver and gold, they were known as sleeve buttons. By the Victorian period, they were indispensable for the gentleman. Men's sterling silver cufflinks are always a great choice, and Novica features beautiful artisan crafted designs from around the world.
Did you know that Nelson Rockefeller gave out cuff-links during his campaign for governor in 1966? The most expensive cuff links in history brought $440,000 dollars in 1987. They were a gift from Wallis Simpson to her husband King Edward VII, who renounced his throne for her.
