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 Figured Hawaiian Koa Ebony Holly Wood Cufflinks exemplify these attributes. These handcrafted square cufflinks have a heart of Acacia Koa wood framed by two thin strips of American Holly, and ended with a piece of polished black West African Ebony wood on either side. Koa wood, grown only in the rich volcanic soil of the Hawaiian Islands, has such extraordinary deviations of color and tone; it takes on the appearance of the well groomed chestnut coat of a horse. The ebony is polished to 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.
