You'll be able to keep a bit of luck on hand when you have these two pennies to rub together! Each cufflink is richly mounted in a sterling silver bezel and plated with gold. Pinch pennies from any year, or combine two different years, for a piece of wearable Americana that always lands heads up. Handmade by Beatrice Matiash in New Jersey.

Made in New Jersey

Designer Beatrice Matiash is motivated by unconventional sources of inspiration. "I am in part a collector," she said. "Everywhere I go, I feel drawn to the color combination on anything from a flyer to a tea set, and to the history of things like a twig or a penny. I collect all these things that influence my jewelry designs." She fondly recalls collecting pennies as a child and immediately checking the year so she could dream up a story about the owner who dropped it.
While managing a trend-driven jewelry boutique and apprenticing for the head designer, Beatrice earned her B.A. in Fashion Buying and Merchandising from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She then joined the Federated Merchandising Group in product development for accessories and simultaneously began to develop her own jewelry design craft. Moving to DKNY as merchandise manager for handbags, she gained insight into the accessories business essential to starting her own company.
In the spring of 2000, Beatrice launched Tashka by Beatrice with a small collection sold in local neighborhood boutiques. Her offerings now include five jewelry groups available nationwide.

Comments about UncommonGoods Penny Cufflinks With Personalized Year:

My husband loves cuff links and I don't mind spending the money for a quality pair, but these fell very short. The design and idea are unique and that is what drew my attention. Once they arrived the weight and feel of the cuff links screamed cheap. Definitely not worth what I paid for them. Good idea in theory, execution fell short.

Comments about UncommonGoods Penny Cufflinks With Personalized Year:

I purchased these for my son who is a dentist. I thought he would like them because they were unique. He did seem to like them, but only because I could not return them. I was not sure if the pennies were authentic or not. Considering the value of a penny and the casing that enclosed them, I thought they were very over priced. Send ymoney or a check instead!

      The cufflinks are unusual and very attractive. You don't find these at the store. Really great idea. My husband was thrilled with them and so I was very happy. One reviewer thought they were too shiny but we didn't think so. Really happy I bought them.

        This was a 7th anniversary gift for my husband. I wanted something unique for our 'copper'anniversary. I had one cufflink personalized with the year we were married and the other with this year ( 7th anniversary). They came out really nice and were VERY shiny! He's received multiple compliments on them. Nice gift :)

          Comments about UncommonGoods Penny Cufflinks With Personalized Year:

          I gave this as a baptism gift for my godson and the parents loved it.

          I think that for the quality of the gift and the cost, the packaging was rather cheap. A nicer box would really improve the presentation. I was tempted to re-box it, but the artist's name is on the box and I didn't want to take this away.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was actually quicker than predicted.
