CUFF LINKS: THE NEW CRAZE

 

 The cuff link collecting market is currently enjoying a boom. For years most collectors were closet collectors, thinking they were the only ones. When the National Cuff Links Society was formed in 1990, it was like a rallying cry; collectors came out of the woodwork. There's something for every budget, and you now have both men and women and entire families pursuing the genre.

Collectors often specialize in niches, such as: presidential; specific animals, such as dogs or horses; cameos; religious symbols; erotica; fraternal emblems; initials; Art Deco; and corporate logos. You see people who only want red stones, or cuff links made in Newark, New Jersey. Novelty cuff links are part of the current revival, such as cuff link watches or pairs reading "Buy/Sell" or "Left/Right."
