Cufflinks should be at least as distinctive as the person wearing them. They should reflect the uniqueness, style and originality of the wearer. No medium quite captures these characteristics with as much warmth and beauty as wood. Wood's warm tones, unique grains and ring patterns make each individual piece a work of art. The Afzelia Burl Ebony Wood Cufflinks exemplify these attributes. These handcrafted square cufflinks have a center of precious Afzelia burl wood that is framed by two pieces of polished black West African Ebony. Afzelia is a rare tropical hardwood tree that grows in Southeast Asia. It has rich light and brown tones with dark grain lines and irregular traces that give it the appearance of an aged piece of rough hewn silk. The Ebony is polished to a smooth, gemstone like perfection. The set is bullet backed with plated base metal closures. No two cufflinks are exactly alike, which makes each set a one-of-a-kind accessory.
