Cufflinks are the ultimate in sophistication and a great contemporary gift idea. The forerunner to the modern cuff link appeared in the early 1500’s when prominent men began wearing their shirts with ruffed wristbands tied together with strings. Legend says that the modern cuff link was born (or at least achieved popularity) in the pages of Alexander Dumas ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’. A character in the book sported enormous diamonds on his shirt cuffs that sparked great envy in everyone who looked on them. Not long after the book was published, tailors recognized how important it could be, to a “proper gentleman’s” clothing. Today celebrities and businessmen alike wear cufflinks as a sign of finesse and good taste. Imagine his delight when he finds a box containing the Irish Boru Celtic warrior cufflinks in the toe of his Christmas stocking.
