The Artistic Links Story
Artistic Links cufflinks blend personality and flair with the sophistication of formal attire. Paul Dryson, curator of On the Cuff, a exhibition celebrating the history of cufflinks, said it best:
Every properly dressed person wears cufflinks. No one wants to invest millions with someone wearing button cuffs.
Most pieces in the Artistic Links collection are fashioned using antique Japanese buttons made of Satsuma or Arita porcelain. Produced in the early 1900s, these exemplary buttons depict culturally significant themes, The Seven Lucky Fortune Gods and Noh Masks.
The formation of cufflinks, tie tacks, and other fine jewelry using these unique buttons preserves the distinctive character and extraordinary quality of the original designs. As each button was individually hand crafted, sizes and designs vary ever so slightly. A mold is taken of every button so each 18K gold bezel is a perfect fit. The result is a one of a kind piece of art to be both worn and cherished.
