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.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

The cuff links do not look like the photo. The silver is dull and the obsidion is chipped leaving white powder chips on the black. I will try to polish with a soft cloth.
