I also have another style of map cufflinks available here:
A unique and personal gift for the special man in your life, these can be customized to showcase and preserve any significant location.
Birthplace, hometown, honeymoon, where you met, where your children were born, or the city you always dream to visit... you can choose to have up to two different maps, or I can make the pair a matching set.
Rest assured that you are purchasing an heirloom quality piece of jewelry. Bezel settings are individually formed, cut and soldered by hand and measure approximately 1/2" in diameter. Hand finished with a gentle oxidation and a light brushing to leaving a rich antiqued surface.
Cufflink backs are the highest quality and made from solid sterling silver, pivoting to accommodate buttonholes. Maps are protected and set behind a magnifying resin.
I have a varying collection of antique world atlases, so chances are very high that I have the city or town you are looking for. Please write a note with the location(s) you have chosen in the 'message to seller' on your order when you check out. I'll let you know if I have any trouble in locating your chosen town.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for your order to be custom made just for you.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
* * Maps are not only my life's passion, but also in my blood. My great grandmother, who is also my namesake, was a single young independent working woman in the late 19th and early 20th century, which was not the norm for ladies at that time. She was employed away from her hometown, as an assistant to a cartographer in Washington DC. Although I never had the opportunity to meet her, her life and story continue to be a huge inspiration to me.* *
