Pearl Cufflinks or Mother of Pearl Cufflinks Stylish and Timeless

In our opinion Pearl Cufflinks, or Mother of Pearl Cufflinks are stylish and timeless. The actual history of cufflinks is relatively recent, as though they came into use in the 1600’s it wasn’t until the middle of the 19th Century that they became fashionable and their use widespread. The rise in the popularity of cufflinks is mainly down to shirt design and changes in dress codes as the more flamboyant dress styles of the aristocracy was replaced by a more practical style of the working middle classes as industrialisation took place, out went ruffs and lose cuffs and in came dark formal suits with tails and waistcoats, starched shirts with double cuffs which could not be secured by a simple button.

Initially gemstone cufflinks were only worn by highly confident men, however in the UK Edward VII wore Faberge cufflinks and a trend was started that spread from the UK to US. By the 1900’s cufflinks were highly popular, and a wide range of cufflink styles and designs emerged, that we still see retailed today in 2021.

In current fashions the cufflink is not only associated with formal dress but is equally likely to be paired with a formal shirt and jeans as both evening wear and office clothes become more casual and mix and match.

The cufflink is still part of formal, and informal, wedding attire for the groom and best man, and for those occasions we would favour a Solid Silver Cufflink, as they also make a great Best Man Gift.

As fashion becomes Unisex we also see an increase in women using Cufflinks as a bold statement of empowerment and fashion, wearing cufflinks with a formal shirt. We stock not only white cufflinks but also pink and black pearls.

Mother of Pearl Cufflinks, also make a great gift for a person born in June, where Pearls are the birthstone for the month, making the gift much more personal and thoughtful. Our Mother of Pearl Cufflinks also make a great Fathers Day Gift, with Fathers Day in the UK falling on Sunday 20th of June this year. A Fathers Day Gift of Pearl or Mother of Pearl Cufflinks is a stylish fashion accessory that will be treasured for many years.

Here at Pearl Jewellery Online we obviously love pearls, and as we see fashions for men wearing pearls hit the headlines in 2021 it is worth remembering that men have been wearing pearl jewellery, in the form of pearl cufflinks for several centuries!
