Description

These incredibly rare and seldom found cufflinks from SWANK are from the 1962 Limited Edition Arts of The World Collection, and a stunning prize in scarcity, beauty and craftsmanship. They feature a wrought sterling silver, copper and brass combination inlaid onto a black core. This is a stunning pair and I'm incredibly excited to bring them to the lucky person who covets them—or wants to give the perfect unbeatably unique gift. They are in fabulous condition, are among the most prized of the early 1960's and will come with the exclusive Creme de la Cuff Certificate of Pedigree that dates and identifies them from the original magazine ad in which they first appeared. As an added bonus they will arrive in a brand new lacquered hardwood gift box.

Returns and exchange details

Since most of these items are 50/60+ years old, they understandably do not come with any warranty. Items such as watch cufflinks or any other "mechanical" aspects must be treated with the care and respect for their age—they are NOT new items. Because most of these items are vintage and valued on their condition, we only accept exchanges, PROVIDING THE ORIGINALLY PURCHASED CUFFLINKS ARE IN EXACTLY THE SAME CONDITION AS THEY WERE SHIPPED IN. Any scratches, nicks or damage will incur either a partial or full price of the item fee, ESPECIALLY if they have been in the purchasers possession for more than one month, with the exception of the following items: Watch cufflinks, lighter cufflinks, harmonica cufflinks, or any other mechanical cufflinks—these are tested for mechanical workmanship before being shipped to the buyer, and are purchased at the buyers risk. They are NOT returnable or exchangeable. Buyer is responsible for shipping the cufflinks back to Creme de la Cuff. Once the cufflinks have been inspected, we will notify the customer, and they will be able to either switch out their cufflinks for a pair of equal value or greater. If the selection is of greater value they must pay for the difference in price.

Important Notes About Vintage Cufflink Conditions and Valuation

At Creme de la Cuff we strive to acquire our vintage cufflinks in either excellent or New Old Stock (NOS) condition. We don't want to sell cufflinks that are not beautiful, or look worn or shabby, no matter how old they are or once fabulous they were. That being said, here are a few things you should know about our vintage cufflinks and the conditions they are in. If any of the following seems obvious, we apologize in advance for boring you with the details...

We sell vintage cufflinks. We do not sell new cufflinks. None of our cufflinks are new, nor should be expected ever to arrive in “new” condition—even though as you can see in the pictures the majority of our cufflinks are in just that condition.

Most of our cufflinks are 50-60 years old, so they have to be considered either lightly worn before, or aged naturally by the elements or conditions in which they were stored, in the case of "new" old stock. Even "new" old stock cufflinks will sometimes have small customary blemishes of time on them. Some blemishes are from excess humidity or weather conditions--some unsold stock was stored in basements or warehouses—not exactly under "priceless document" conditions, if you receive our meaning. We strive to choose those pairs that are pristine.

We do not list or categorize each pair of our cufflinks condition, which is why we list large PHOTOS of every pair and set, without any smoke and mirrors, and leave the interpretation to our prospective buyers/connoisseurs. Simply put, what you see is what you get. We want you to be happy and matched up with your perfect links. You'll know it when you see it.

So how do we determine valuation? In a way, we consider some of the same elements that are used in numismatics (coin collecting) except for a few important areas. Each set, while mass-produced is unique, unlike lets say Lincoln pennies, which are all standardized, and easy to rate. Unlike actual currency however, which is not thrown away after wear, many of the fabulous designs of yesteryear have vanished, or are only found in dilapidated condition. We consider the rarity of each pair—how long it took us to acquire them, how many we've seen in years of collecting and acquiring, what condition they are in, as well as consider the actual elements of the links themselves: Do they feature a semi-precious stone? Precious metal? Hand carved? Were some elements imported from another country? Was the edition or collection limited to only a few years? We consider all of these factors, then come to the most important aspect about valuation: How great we think they are. We believe value (and beauty) is in the eye and opinion of the prospective buyer as well—and we trust you to want the ones you love.
