Cufflinks are the cherry on top when it comes to elevating any suited look. Even though they may seem like a minute accessory, in actuality they’re an essential finishing building block for anybody wishing to add some extra flair to their evening attire.
Knowing this, we decided on stocking the best of the best when it comes to cufflinks, which is why we are proud of our unique selection of leather cufflinks by none other than our friends at Ettinger London. The brass cufflinks have pure palladium plating; a material stronger than gold, a hypoallergenic metal that is naturally bright white, 95% pure and won’t tarnish. The leather inlay is made from a buttery, waxy cowhide that will remain soft and smooth to the touch with wear.
These tastefully simple yet luxurious cufflinks make an incredibly thoughtful gift this Christmas, read more about what makes them special on our website here.
Alongside our beautifully refined cufflinks, finely crafted leather wallets by Ettinger London have also found their way into our online selection of luxury accessories. From visiting card cases, billfold wallets, passport cases, and mini wallets, any Ettinger London accessory will make for an unforgettable and forever cherished gift this Christmas.
The textured leather goods are made from a strong and durable goat leather, featuring a natural lanolin which deters dirt from penetrating the leather as easily as other leathers. The leather wallets by Ettinger London all come decorated with a silver Ettinger logo and a Royal Warrant inside.
There’s nothing like being greeted by the smell of fresh leather upon opening a gift. Read more about our range of Ettinger London wallets and holders on our website here.
Lastly, but certainly not least, come the Oxbridge Watches. These make a truly special gift as a result of the deep sentimental value they can hold to the wearer/receiver. All of our Oxbridge Watches are officially licensed and exclusive limited editions, making them highly sought after pieces of history.
With an Oxbridge Watch, you can pay homage to the wonder years of your time throughout higher education, as with each glance at the time you’ll be reminded of the joyous moments spent enjoying your University experience, as well as all of the hard work and determination it took to see it through.
On our website, we have both Oxford and Cambridge watches in stock, both of which come in a variety of colourways native to the colours of each respective university. If you are looking for a truly timeless Christmas present that will last for centuries to come, an Oxbridge Watch is the perfect place to start.
