“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. “
(United States Declaration of Independence)
These two scrolls – US Declaration of Independence and the Emancipation Proclamation – are the most eminent landmarks in the history of the American people.
The portrait of Abraham Lincoln, the one who has become the symbol of Liberty, is worked upon new amber, which is known by its capability to increase its color potential in the course of time. Here it is combining both historical scrolls on the Stripes and Stars background. The profile shape of the cufflinks resembles a seal. The clasp reminds of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial theme with the bas-relief images of four Presidents who determined the USA historical development: George Washington – the Father of American democratic Nation, Abraham Lincoln, who put an end to slavery, Thomas Jefferson – the US Declaration of Independence creator and Theodor Roosevelt, who is believed to have saved the country.
The stud binding is designed in the form of the Brooklyn Bridge pier.
The “Liberty” cufflinks remind of lofty ideals introduced by Great Americans at the turning-points of history.
