These cufflinks were cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1700's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge verity of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...
This seal has the image of a skull with the words ‘j’ai ete, je suis, tu seras’ or ‘as you are so once was I’.... a lesson in mortality.
These cufflinks are sterling silver as is the mechanism of the cufflinks.
The cufflinks measures approx. 13.5mm This may vary however as each one is made by hand.
