From time to time I speak with Howard Bell and over the decades he has taught me a thing or two about vintage cufflinks. He is one of the foremost authorities on antique and vintage cufflinks in the US.
You might think these incredible Geode cufflinks are new but they were made in the 1960s. To a vintage cufflink hound like myself, the very uncommon style of the cufflink mechanisms dates the cufflinks to this period. Some might mistake these cufflinks for agates but they are not. They are beautiful Geode slices in hues of soft blue gray and cinnamon.
The cufflinks are not identical in shape as they are natural Geode slices. Large in size, the cufflinks are about 1 1/4" tall x 1" wide or 30 mm x 25 mm. The pair is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. The Geodes are flawless with no chips, scratches, or loss of natural shine. The cufflinks are not signed as they were custom or artisan made.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation cufflink box as pictured.
* Info to dating these cufflinks: one of the tricks to dating cufflinks is knowing when certain styles of cufflink mechanisms were made and combined with the design or style of the cufflinks, one can narrow down when the cufflinks were made to one or two decades. The long pointed/slant insert mechanism on these cufflinks was only made in the 1940s thru the 1960s. Really big cufflinks were not in fashion in the 1940s or 1950s so it is safe to say these cufflinks were made in the 1960s...when Hippies ruled all new fashion designs!
