When it comes to the topic of jewelry, there are many schools of thought and opinions about what to wear, which styles are acceptable, and some gentlemen even prefer to stay as understated as possible and forgo it altogether. One thing is for sure though, every man with a quality suit owes it to themselves to purchase a pair of cufflinks of an equal caliber to round out their wardrobe. The best part about top-notch cufflinks- they can last you a lifetime!
Take your outfit to the next level with some of our favorite cufflinks that are perfect for any occasion
- Jan Leslie
- The diversity and attention to detail in Jan Leslie’s work is simply incredible. The good news is that there’s likely something that will appeal to everyone, but the bad news is ]you’ll likely want to start a collection of her beautiful pieces once you see them. There’s everything from gemstone and mother-of-pearl pieces for the classic complimentary flair, to the delicately detailed and captivating Watch Movement Cufflinks, which make for a lovely pairing with an equally complex timepiece.
- Deakin & Francis
- Deakin & Francis are highly regarded British jewelers that have a legacy nearing two and half centuries. While they offer elegant takes on the more traditional styles of cufflinks, where they truly excel is in their inspired “Fundamentals” collection. Featuring pieces ranging from ship wheels to golf clubs to dice and so much more, if you’re looking for something to express your personality or interests in a stylish and professional manner, they’re bound to have it. All of their pieces seem to radiate class and craftsmanship.
- Ermenegildo Zegna
- Sure, Ermenegildo Zegna’s pieces are the priciest on this list and perhaps the limited spread of the collections aren’t as extensive as the others, but the spectacular pieces are made to stand the test of time and are considered by many to be works of art in their own right. The Carved Knot Cufflinks are our favorite of the current run, but it’s worth checking with retailers or browsing the second-hand market for some of the classics as well. While there are some flashier pieces, most are pure understated brilliance at its finest.
