Corazon Latino has the Annan Aqua Seaglass and Silver Cufflinks range. Seaglass is Victorian glass (mainly bottles) that have washed around in the sea for over 100 years before washing up on beaches worldwide. Some of the best quality and rarest seaglass is found on our own shores, mainly along the North East coast.

 

 

The seaglass is combed from the beaches of County Durham and then set in sterling silver in Cornwall. The silver is brushed to give a matt finish that complements the frosted finish of the glass. Each piece of glass has its own unique colour and texture, and each cufflink is handmade around the seaglass pebble so colours and shapes are irregular, and every pair is completely unique. The Aqua shades vary from a pale apple to a rich deep aqua.

The Style

 

Slip the cufflinks into the French cuffs of your shirt. The fabric on your wrists may be a little loose as there is nothing to keep it together. If your cuffs have extra fabric flap at your sleeve end, fold it neatly to make a folded cuff. Now keep the buttonholes of your cuff and the 2 pieces that you want to keep together in the same line. There are different mechanisms used to close the cufflinks. One is a post and a swivel bar type. With the swivel bar closed, pass the cufflink through the buttonhole. Once threaded through the buttonholes, open the swivel bar. This should keep the cufflink in place.

 

 

The other types of cufflink locks are button style which has two identical buttons that are linked together by a chain or cod. These can be worn by sliding one button across the aligned buttonholes, thus there will be one button displayed on each side. Clip cufflinks are similar to button-style and have ornamental piece displayed on either side. Clip cufflinks have a front and back and clip together in the middle where they meet inside the aligned buttonholes.
