About The #8 Mine Turquoise, Red Abalone & Green Sea Snail Cuff Links

It isn't always appropriate to wear your heart on your sleeve, but one doesn't have to give up style.  In this age of gender neutral fashion and work place wardrobes, individuality lives in the details.

Accessorizing has become an art of balance.  We have evolved from the decorative display of wealth to more sensitive and sophisticated concerns. Jewelry has grown in the same direction.  People are looking for some meaning beyond mere decoration, something with depth reflective of their personalities, something unique.

"Less is more".  Finding a few quality pieces you are comfortable with is key--then, wear them!

These sublime Zuni cuff links are a perfect example of restrained elegance--suited for either gentle man or gentle woman.

Post World War II vintage late 1940's to early 1950's, these beautifully designed and executed channel inlay rectangles blend traditional geometrics and materials with a pre-war Art Deco influenced that re-surfaced later becoming "Mid Century Modern."

The sunset red abalone, blue #8 mine turquoise and green sea snail mother of pearl are well placed with each other, the red representing physical life and turquoise the duel blessing of heaven and earth.  

A flawless blend of form and function, these cuff links will do justice to the most discerning wearer.  They are destined by become someone's signature piece for business and pleasure.
