Elizabeth Gage: Cufflinks That Make History

Invest in three one-of-a-kind sets of cufflinks by award-winning jeweller Elizabeth Gage that draw from the mints of ancient societies.

Each of these unique pairs of cufflinks are set with coins from ancient societies.

There are cufflink brands and then there is Elizabeth Gage MBE, an award-winning jeweller who creates, without doubt, some of the most investible and collectable pieces of fine art jewellery today, as evidenced by these three one-of-a-kind sets of cufflinks, now available on The Rake. Having scoured the delights of antiquity, Gage has creatively integrated each set with provenance-identified ancient coins, turning a functional facet of sartorial dressing into a highly collectable talking point that will elevate your formalwear look to stratospheric levels (not to mention providing instant conversation pieces).

“An important part of my work is jewellery created for men. There are few items that men wear these days. Alas, the 18th century is gone and so are the intricate and glorious buttons, fanciful shoe buckles and elaborately carved cane-heads. However, we still have rings, pendants and cufflinks, with or without matching shirt studs. I enjoy using enamel and molten gold, often incorporating coins or stones into the designs. I use the zodiac symbols that feature on my early rings and my Templar style also translates well into cufflinks.”
