NEW YORK, May 31, 2009 / FW/ — Cuff links? What are those? Who still use them? To the internet generation, cuff links are unknown entities, something that their grandfathers wore; so why give their fathers something old fashioned?
Usually an ornamental device consisting of two parts joined by a shank, chain, or bar for passing through buttonholes to fasten shirt cuffs, cuff links are one of the few men’s jewelry that are not associated with the rapper’s bling.
With the return of the tuxedo, bow ties and formal dressing, thanks partly in part to the popularity of MAD Men and surprisingly enough, the recession wherein job seekers have to reinvent themselves and wear business suits once again instead of the very popular chinos, cuff links are also enjoying a revival.
For the first time ever, world renowned jeweler Temple St. Clair introduces her first ever cuff link collection this Father’s Day. An exquisite collection, featuring blue moonstones, sapphires, rubies and peridot in 18K gold, the Temple St. Clair cuff links collection adds another facet to the classical list of men’s jewelry.
The Temple St. Clair cuff links collection retails from $2,700 to $6,700 and available at Richards, Greenwich, CT (203) 622-0551
