One Response to In Defense of Chain Links

  1. Hi,

    I read your article in the New York Times. Fifteen weeks ago I started a ultra-high end cufflink company. I have taken the former team of Robin Rotenier (who leaped to his death fourteen weeks ago) who for the past 25 years sold cufflinks in Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, Neiman Marcus, and made cufflinks for the past three presidents. Our goal is to make the finest sculptural cufflinks possible, using traditional tecniques. Our creative director has 20+ years of experience, and our cufflinks start at $395 and go to $42,500. While the chains are nostalgic, they break. We make solid back cufflinks, which do not, are easy to put on and off. We do not make the flip or folding back. They are not elegant. I am in New York, and would love to show you how they are made. It is very time consuming, and they are all made in New York. A brief explanation is below. I hope to hear from you.

    Our cufflinks are hand sculpted in New York, by our Creative Director using the “Lost Wax Process”. They are then made into a model, then a mold, and cast in Sterling, gold or Platinum. They are then hand polished, and the stones are then set. After they are completed, they are hand antiqued, polished, antiqued again, and get a final polish.
