Openwork cufflinks are widely used at the time of making symbologies in suit accessories, these besides being representative have a lot to do with some aspect of daily life, being perhaps the highest level of personality in any suit.
The cufflinks as accessories for ceremonies and events of galas are always used, showing what is the individual's thinking in an outfit, being able to use from letters to symbols, representative images and others; and of course, the numbers do not escape this.
Generally the openwork numbers are presented in double-banded shirt benches or in black shirts of the same type, the numbers usually stand out for the unique brightness of the silver Argentium, without the possibility of mentioning other alloys because the silverwork is something Own material.
Although the Cufflinks can appear in multiple forms, the openwork numbers are the oldest, since they are usually seen mostly in the suits of commercial back pilots, or in the sleeves of some general
Most outstanding features
Cufflinks with openwork numbers have interesting characteristics that make it a little more curious than any other Silver Cufflink, among those we have that its elaboration does not only use bevelled but also by means of slightly fine perforations that do not affect the watermark.
We have then as more striking features:
- Sterling Silver Argentium, 935/000
- Width depending on the specifications
- 17 mm height
- Thickness not less than 2mm
- Terminations in Palladium and Rhodium, polished.
- Fully beveled hand body with Buril
- Automatic closing of whale tail type for greater placement comfort.
- Alternatives to palladium in platinum and polished steel.
Although these characteristics are similar to those of any other silver cufflink, it is noted that the width is not similar to the height but considerably smaller, since we are talking about simple numbers and patterns.
Being a product that does not generate major complications in its manufacture, the use of machine is from the beginning, and this is a distinctive touch to be metal craftsmen who were responsible for manual bevelling; however, for numerical contours everything is much more millimetric.
Openwork cufflinks to give away
When giving cufflinks of openwork numbers we must first know the number to choose, the meaning of it and in which it must be protected, since we are not talking about any accessory but rather a fully representative one.
Let's start with the simplest What number and why? The answer to this question will depend on the person to whom it is given, it can be an anniversary number, his date of birth or favorite number; However, in the case of military figures, asking for the serial or battalion number can also be a significant point.
Once the number has been identified, the next thing that is done is to look for the backup material and its respective box. Airtight bags are perfect for work, they protect Argentium silver from any moisture effect, which leaves it impeccable, remember that the argentum does not easily tarnish.
Finally, we have the box, which may well be a manufacturing case on totally hard papers or by means of much more resistant and durable products such as fine wood, all this delicately covered with some silk coating.
What is silverwork?
With all the previous points understood and set in motion, we have to give a little review of some jewelry information to know what we are buying, it is the Silver Draft, an art that any craftsman dedicated to carving with this material must learn.
Silverwork is a technique that exists since the viceroyalty of Peru, and is nothing more than the drilling of silver following the contours of the surface, but without reaching fine and sharp edges. It is an art that over time has given way to many levels of art and Peru is one of the countries that uses it the most.
Although silver has a special draft with a specific and very delicate tool time, the name "openwork" refers to a technique of many metals ranging from bronze to gold, and also for the occasional jewelry product.
To access, very accessible tools are used, but with a delicate blade, since they drill from a fine point and continue until they do the job, these tools are the jigsaw (of jeweler) or the small metal saw (usually disposable), the table of stall and finally the walrus call.
Cufflinks with openwork letters and numbers
Cufflinks may well have only openwork numbers or go a little further and place letters, this process is the same and does not require any special treatment, since it is the same technique only with more structured forms.
