Cufflinks “Yakutia”


Cufflinks "Yakutia"

The history of cufflinks is simple-elegant. It was the high society they entered to stay, having become precious suit-accessories. In time cufflinks became public-available but soon enough, having denied mediocrity, they returned to the elite. It must be though a true jewelry piece-work to be labeled as the precious one. It was well understood there in European homes, at the earliest stage of bringing cufflinks back into fashion, where people did indeed rate highly the truly exclusive things.

Along with gem-embedded cufflinks wide-popular were also the ones with engraved coat-of-arms. Bearing either a family or career heraldry such cufflinks aimed to tell much more of their owners than just to demonstrate one’s tasteful style.

This saddled horse has become the official Coat-of-Arms of Yakutia

The Men’s cufflinks ‘YAKUTIA’ are the embodiment of severity and luxury. The permafrost of Sakha has granted jewelers with 10,000-year-old mammoth tasks while the local rocks abound in petroglyphs. This saddled horse which has been galloping along the Lena River bank since the beginning of AD has become the official Coat-of-Arms of Yakutia. The golden petroglyph exactly replicates its rock-brethren and the banner symbolizes unity, power and the beginning of State identity.

All Yakutia is rich in: diamonds, mammoth tasks, gold has found its symbolic reflection in the materials the cufflinks are made of. The blue framing is rather traditional for the North. Bluing has been done in the precious hot-baking enamel technique, which means that the color will hardly ever darken or fade.

The blue in the heraldic language means faithfulness, sincerity and reliability – the qualities which will forever stay with the cufflinks owner as his emblem-motto.
