The New Black

Emilie Shapiro's take on classic black tux cufflinks is one of deconstructed, casual elegance through recycled sterling silver and rough cut obsidian. The chunky, jet black obsidian--a volcanic glass--is set in lightly patinated recycled silver bezels, making these distinctive accessories for a postmodern formal look. Perfect for an alternative groom or any evening calling for French cuffs with flair. Handmade in New York.
