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 Cocobolo and Ebony Wood Cufflinks exemplify these attributes. These handcrafted square cufflinks have a center of precious Cocobolo heart wood that is framed by two pieces of polished black West African Ebony. Cocobolo is a rare tropical hardwood tree that grows in Central America. It has a rich, brownish orange color with dark grain lines and irregular traces that are as individual as a fingerprint. 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.
