    Comments about CUSTOM BEACH CUFFLINKS:

    These cuff links are perfect since my husband asked me to marry him at the beach. Guys are so hard to shop for - it's romantic and thoughtful yet something a guy can appreciate. My only complaint is that I thought they'd be a little bit more solid/heavy - it would make them seem like better quality, but the quality does seem good

    This was an excellent gift for my husband who has everything. I used sand from the beach where we got engaged. I love that this is a gift he will keep forever and can pass down to our kids.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I received them exactly six weeks from the day I ordered them. No surprise early delivery. quite a long lead time in my opinion.

    Comments about CUSTOM BEACH CUFFLINKS:

    i love the of idea cuff links that are personalized with sand or stone. However, the color of the cuff links do not look like the sand I ordered. The color is brown but does not resemble sand at all. Additionally the cuff link itself (silver part) looks very cheap and not special. Sad because I was excited to receive the item and love the idea.

      Comments about CUSTOM BEACH CUFFLINKS:

      The use of "personalized" sand was very unique, but I was expecting a higher quality of design and material. Additionally, my husband had trouble getting the cuff link through 4 layers of fabric. He loved the idea of having a souvenir of our favorite beach, but I doubt he will ever wear them. For the price, I expected a nicer product.

        My husband wears cufflinks nearly every day to work, so this was the perfect gift. I sent in sand from the Costa Rican beach where we were married earlier this year and they came back done beautifully. I can't wait to give them to him for Christmas, as we are celebrating on the same beach where we were married. Thank you to Holly and everyone at Uncommon Goods. Pura Vida!!!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Purchased these for my husband and sent in sand from the beach in Costa Rica we were married on earlier this year. Uncommon goods and Holly the artist made a special effort to have these made and delivered to me in times for Christmas, as we are flying back to the beach where we were married Christmas Day. The cufflinks are beautiful and and now my husband will be able to open them on time. Special thanks to everyone at Uncommon Goods, as everyone at customer service helped make this happen! Customer service was extremely kind and helpful and even called me at home with updates. I will continue to be an avid Uncommon Goods shopper!
