Although the first cufflinks appeared in the 1600's, they did not become popular until the end of the 18th century. Cufflinks have been items of clothing since the invention of woven fabric 5,000 years B.C.
The cufflink is an ingenious device with more than a mere utilitarian purpose. Today's cufflinks express a mood, a passion, or a sense of tradition. Cufflinks let you wear your heart on your sleeve. Show the world what you're made of and collect cufflinks for work, play, and pleasure.
