The cuff link portion and the 5/8" square front piece is 925 sterling, the front is hand cut, stamped with initials, and hand brushed with a cross-hatch finish. (I can also make this high-polished, just let me know in the notes to seller.)
Please include your choice of initials in the notes to seller box at checkout.
They will be stamped all in capitals with the first and last initial separated by a dot. This product can only be stamped on the front side.
These cuff links are soldered by hand to the backs. Sterling silver will naturally oxidize over time, we include a polishing pad for cleaning.

We also offer these with silver plated cuff link backs for only $38:
If you'd like to customize this beyond the options we've described, please contact us to let us know what you have in mind.
Our process is very different from traditional engraving, which carves a light groove into the metal. Stamping is a more forceful technique, where each individual letter, number and symbol is stamped by hand, one at a time with a hammer and steel stamp. Because our products are not machine-made, reasonable variations are to be expected and contribute to the uniqueness and hand finished quality of each piece.

**Regarding our metals**
-Aluminum is our favorite material for rings and bracelets. It won't turn your skin green, won't oxidize or tarnish, and it loves water. Plus it's so lightweight, you might even forget you're wearing it!
-Copper and Brass will both naturally oxidize as well as react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Nickel silver will not oxidize, however it will react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Sterling silver will naturally oxidize over time.
-Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper can all be polished with any jewelry polishing cloth to restore the beautiful original shine.
