Swank has been a well-known name in men's jewelry since the early part of the 20th Century. Their cufflink sets range from the simple and classic to the very elaborate. After nearly 100 years, there is almost no end to the variety of designs and materials you will find.
This set consists of a tiny tie tack and cufflinks still in the original box. Each is composed of a single "nugget" of iridescent golden lava glass on gold tone mounts. The cufflinks use a toggle mechanism and are perfect for today's French cuffs. The tie tack has a pin back with clutch and a chain, which is under the inset.
The face of each cufflink measures 1-1/8" across by 1" high. The tie tack measures approximately 1/2" by 1/2" . In addition to the brand on the box, the cufflinks are marked with the Swank trademark on the reverse.
The cufflinks and tie tack appear to be in excellent condition since they have never been removed from the box. The box shows some light soiling on the velvet cardboard inset. There are dark marks on the gold tone lip on the box (pictured).
