Imagine carving rock crystal in reverse! It is a really hard stone to cut so not only does the artist have that problem, but also they then have to be painted in reverse. It is a difficult and demanding process and means these cufflinks are highly sought after. They are 18ct gold and were retailed in England circa 1880, and feature an array of game birds – grouse, partridge, duck and a pheasant. They would make an ideal gift for someone who enjoys their shooting.
