Vintage cufflinks are experiencing a resurgence for weddings and we can certainly understand why. Vintage wedding themes evoke the glamour, elegance and style of a golden era while also appealing to our modern sensibilities. The problem is then finding the best quality cufflinks for your vintage-themed wedding. Unless you have the budget for custom-made cufflinks this can be difficult. Fortunately, there are a few options to consider but before you start shopping it’s important to select a specifc era.
How To Select An Era?
Your first task in looking for the best vintage cufflinks is to determine the specific era from which you are drawing inspiration from. In general, clothes and personal accessories are considered vintage when they were produced from the 1920s to the 1960s. Anything produced before the 20s is considered antique while items produced after the 70s are deemed as ‘retro’. Keep in mind that each era will have a unique vibe.
For example, the Roaring Twenties was characterized by geometric shapes, simple lines and a liberated approach to clothes and personal accessories. Thus, you should look for simple square and round cufflinks with bold artistic detailing. In contrast, the 1960s was the decade when fashion rules were broken at will with the emergence of the hippie era. Therefore, look for novelty cufflinks featuring popular hippie icons like the Volkswagen beetle, scooter and bikini. This era is great because it gives you room for creativity and to have some fun!
Where To Shop?
When shopping for vintage cufflinks many people start out on foot, trawling through retail stores, flea markets, old wares outlets and garage sales. You may be able to find what you’re looking for but it can be difficult and time consuming. Consider these challenges; you have to sort through loads of stuff, hopping from one store to the next and all during regular business hours or during your precious weekend time. That’s why we recommend shopping online.
