These chain cufflinks have an additional detail that is both visually pleasing and practical. Rather than a solid shaft, the two anchors of these cufflinks are in fact attached with a short chain. This allows them to be flexible as well as slightly unusual.
The surfaces of the cufflink anchors are made from symmetrical oval panels that are polished to a high level, giving off a lovely sheen.
Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
Fine silver (99.9% pure) is generally too soft for making functional objects. It is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while keeping the ductility and appearance of the precious metal.
