British 1960s Cufflinks
| An elegant bit of flash from the Swinging
1960s in London. These mesmerizing cufflinks are an
intriguing marriage of usually staid British cufflink design
with the psychedelic. Ideal for your next stroll
down Carnaby Street or a quiet evening with friends listening to
the Beatles on the hi-fi. Crafted in 9 carat gold, circa
British jewelers have a long tradition of creating finely crafted cufflinks. This pair is an elegant example. Note the sturdy ring brackets and the strong clip-links that secure these cufflinks on the cuff. The backs of the cufflinks, like the fronts, are finished with a bright, high polish..
In Britain there is also a tradition of properly dating and signing fine jewelry. The backs and cross links of these cufflinks are marked "9" and ".375" for the purity of the gold. To the right of the gold marks are a date letter "o" indicating the cufflinks were made in 1969 or early 1970 and a leopard's head, the hallmark of the London Assay Office.
On the opposite side of the brackets is a maker's mark (a "K" with a small "N" or maybe it is a "w"). This maker's mark is yet to be identified.
