A Comparison of the Leading English Cufflink Brands

There is a very large and diverse range of cufflinks, with something to suit every taste and personality. Each designer brand offers a unique look, but without knowing what sets them apart it is hard to find the right brand (and hence pair of cufflinks) for you. Some cufflink brands focus on classic sterling silver designs whilst others specialise in brightly coloured enamel cufflinks or sparkly crystal designs. There are several English designer brands that are particularly worth having a look at. In this article I will look at cufflinks from Duchamp-London, Tateossian, Simon Carter, Paul Smith, Tyler and Tyler, Murray Ward and Seven London.

 If you’re intention is to be bold and get noticed, take a look at Duchamp-London cufflinks. Duchamp is a premium men’s accessories brand that has developed a global reputation for their use of vivid colours and detailed abstract designs. The cufflink shapes are classic and include rectangles, circles and ovals. The standout feature though is the vivid colour and design detail they are able to achieve through the use of hand enamelling. One of their signature cufflinks is the square Harlequin which has smaller squares of colour for a stained glass effect. Whilst most cufflinks have an abstract design, some include motifs such as paisley and floral patterns. Duchamp-London cufflinks make a strong style statement, and are there to be noticed. They are ideally suited for a confident man who wants to show that he has achieved a certain level of success and maturity.

Tateossian is a London based jewellery company, and as such their cufflinks are like pieces of jewellery with many incorporating precious stones such as onyx, mother of pearl, lapis, jade and even black diamonds. Their cufflinks are very high quality, with a close attention to detail. For example their football cufflinks feature a matching football boot, whilst their solid silver king skull cufflinks are decorated with Swarovski crystals in the crown and eyes. Tateossian cufflinks are ideally suited for special occasions and present a feeling of opulence and luxury. Tateossian are also well known for their mechanical cufflinks such as working thermometers, Compasses and watches which can act as a real talking point.

The title ‘King of Cufflinks’ belongs to Simon Carter, whose range has a very British flavour. His quirky sense of humour shines through with his modern take on vintage British styling, which includes his Victorian subversives and regency squares. There is a real cross section of patterns and shapes, holding it all together by Simon Carter’s love for everything British. Many cufflinks use semi precious stones such as mother of pearl and Swarovski crystals at very reasonable prices. Unusual shapes include; honeybees, aspirin tablets, petals and teapots. His cufflinks are well suited to anyone who wants to inject a light hearted feel into their plain everyday suit.

Paul Smith is perhaps one of England’s best loved fashion designers with his distinctive, slightly 1960s, British look. He has a very strong range of men’s accessories which includes some wonderful cufflinks. Similar to Duchamp-London, classic shapes are given a unique twist with coloured enamelled patterns, such as the Paul Smith thin multi-stripe synonymous to the brand. There is a definite sense of fun running throughout the range, such as the classic British mini painted with the Paul Smith stripe.

Similar to Tateossian, Seven London is a jewellery brand with a range of designer cufflinks. All their designs combine solid silver with precious stones and crystals. Their look is fashionable and refined, with clean simple lines and limited use of colour. If you are looking for sports motif cufflinks for the discerning gentleman then look no further than Murray Ward. They specialise in solid silver designs on shooting, horse riding, golf tennis, skiing and other outdoor pursuits. Finally, Tyler and Tyler offer a unique collection of hand enamelled cufflinks with two very different signature looks. The first uses black floral silhouettes set against a background of vivid and seductive colour. This look is very dramatic and works very well with a black tie/dinner suit. Their second look is the ‘Victorian tease’, which has erotic pictures of Victorian women and will show off the more naughty side of your personality.
