Something for the Groom and Groomsmen!

Finding something unique and different for the groom and groomsmen is always a problem it seems like. This Etsy artist creates some unique items that all men are sure to love, especially when they find out item can be customized for each person! How cool is that?!

The history of cufflinks goes back to the middle ages where its precursor the ‘cuff string’ adorned the wrists of fashinable gentlemen of the day. One of the earliest references to what we know recognise as cufflinks was made in the London Gazette of 1684 which referred to a pair of cuff buttons set with diamonds, the same journal in 1686 also described a pair of gold enamelled cuff buttons. More evidence of the existence of cufflinks in the middle ages was found in Suffolk, England when a decorated gold single chain cufflink was discovered also dating back to the 17th century.Despite its early appearance the continual taste for adorning sleeve ends with elaborate wrist ruffles meant it was not until the mid-nineteenth century that the cufflink really came into its own as dandy-ish ruffles gave way to functionally minimal sleeves and in particular the arrival of the French Cuff (also called the Double Cuff) or as the French themselves called it poignet mousquetaire – the musketeers cuff, paving the way for the emergence proper of cufflinks.Initially confined to the upper echelons of society, by the 1860’s cufflink grew into the mainstream as jewelers like Child & Child in London and Krementz & Co in New York brought out cufflinks that were within the price range of the wider public.

Custom cuff links for your wedding would be a nice touch- Personalize each set of cuff links for each Groomsmen. Need help with getting started? Send an email to bellamodaartists@hotmail.com
