Vintage early 1960s Swank silvertone square cuff links in the brushed finish so popular at the time feature a corner accent of cut-out swirl and grey mother-of-pearl button. (A 1963 ad for Swank cuff-links in brushed silvertone and MOP refers to the grey color option as “smoked pearl”.)
Both the “frame” and reverse of the cuff links are polished silvertone. Stamped “SWANK” on their backs, these elegant cuff links measure ¾” square and are in excellent condition.
Swank was established as a men’s jewelry corporation in the mid-1930s by the turn-of-the-twentieth-century Attleboro Manufacturing Company of Massachusetts. In the late 1940s, financially robust after its wartime production of tools, machine gun parts, and military decorations for the US government, Swank expanded into men’s accessories and leather goods while cementing its role as the world’s largest manufacturer of men’s jewelry.
