This week we're loving this set of dashing gold cufflinks!
Men get the short end of the stick when it comes to jewelry. For women, the options are endless. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, brooches, you name it! Women can and do wear just about any type of jewelry. Men, on the other hand? Not so much. Aside from wedding rings, most of the jewelry women wear men eschew. Some men wear jewelry, of course. Earrings aren't uncommon, and some men wear necklaces and bracelets.
But for most men, cufflinks are the most jewelry they'll wear aside from a wedding ring. Cufflinks are a subtle way to add bling to your outfit. Cufflinks are also a symbol of luxury. Cheaper men's suits have no need for cufflinks, as they tend to have buttons already sewn in. But a luxury, high-end suit will beg a pair of cufflinks to be the finishing touch.
Cufflinks aren't a new invention. Like most men's fashion, they have been a lasting staple since the 19th century. At the time, starched formal wear was popular. Unfortunately, the durable material used was too stiff for a simple button. The cufflink became popular as a way to complete the outfit. Although menswear has become more casual since then, the appeal of a cufflink remains. If you're dressing up for a nice occasion, a nice set of cufflinks is the perfect way to add flair to your outfit without going over the top.
Cufflinks are also a great gift idea for the mens' formalwear enthusiast in your life. It's easy to buy jewelry for the lady in your life, but if you've struggled to find equal ground for men, look no further than an elegant pair of cufflinks.
#WeLove These Cufflinks

Why I Picked This: Paul said he liked these cufflinks because they are attention grabbing. He said they looked like something a "1970s pimp" would wear. That makes these cufflinks fun -- something that is traditionally understated and elegant is given a louder sensibility. No one would overlook these cufflinks!
Specifications: These cufflinks are made of 14K yellow gold. They are disc shaped -- in fact, one could say that they look like records. The circular shape features grooves cut around the outer edge. They are approximately one inch in diameter.
Malak Jewelers has a good variety of cufflinks available. Whether you love the over-the-top feel of these record cufflinks, or you're looking for something a little more subtle, there's a pair for you at Malak Jewelers! Malak Jewelers also has a good selection of other jewelry for men!
