When to wear Cufflinks

Cufflinks provide a stylish flair, whether going out in your formal wear or in your casual outfit. Wearing cufflinks is a reflection on your personality. Stand out and rock those cufflinks with confidence!

Choose crystal healing cufflinks for their unique design and stone properties. For men's fashion, you can combine your dressy cufflinks with tie clips and stick pins. For women's fashion, you can match your cufflinks with your crystal healing necklace, bracelet, earrings and rings.

To wear cufflinks, insert the small end of the link into the french cuff's opening slit. Flatten the small end so that the cufflink is secure within the cuff. You can choose to pinch the sleeve ends together flat so they extend out from your wrist in the "kissing cuff" or you can fold the sleeve ends together like a normal buttoned shirt cuff.

You will find different styles of fashion cufflinks. There are cufflinks with bullet backs which you wear by flattening the bar to insert through the cuff. There are toggle bars on chains which you insert into the cuff with the bar. There are stud cufflinks which you insert into the cuff opening like a button.

Wearing Crystal Healing Cufflinks

At the Satin Crystals boutique, we specialize in natural stone cufflinks, using one-of-kind crystals like blue Sodalite, Black Onyx and green Malachite set in different metal types.

Keep your recipient in mind when presenting fashion cufflinks as handmade gifts. Presenting several designs in one gift box would be ideal to enable your recipient to switch out styles and stone properties.

Metaphysically, wearing stone cufflinks can balance the chakras and enhance positive energies. They also allow the energies to better flow from receiving hand to giving hand.

Cufflinks came about in the 17th century, popularized by King Charles II with his flair for fashion. Who created the cufflinks has been lost in history, but before they existed, people used to use cuff strings to close up their sleeves. Cufflinks were much more fashionable than strings and allowed people to select their chosen gemstones, colors and charms as a way to show off their own style.

These days, we don't use cufflinks as often as the past, but they are definitely still alive in their functionality and adornment of a well-dressed man or women!

Although cufflinks have defaulted to men's fashion, women can wear cufflinks too.
