Vintage snap cufflinks were extremely popular in the Art Deco period. They were
often made with brightly colored celluloid or enamel with mother of
pearl and rhinestone accents.
Snap cufflinks are inserted into french cuffs prior to the arm
being placed through the sleeve. At first the procedure can seem a
little clumsy but with a little practice, the cufflinks can be inserted
in less than ten seconds. Firstly separate the snap cufflinks into two
pieces (most snap cufflinks simply "break" apart, but some operate with a
release button). Thread each piece of the cufflink through the
buttonhole. After putting your arm through the sleeve the cufflinks are
simply "snapped" together with your other hand.
To remove the snap cufflinks, place downwards pressure on the
inside of the cuff with your finger and the cuff will pop open (a few
types of snap cufflinks will require a button to be operated). The shirt
and cufflinks can then be removed.
They make an beautiful cuff and can be easily unsnapped so that you can roll up your sleeve with ease. Button size and a bit of pop, its the perfect gift!
