For the LOVE of 14kt GOLD A wedding memory
What better wedding gift for you soon to be husband than 14kt gold cufflinks? He can walk down the aisle with these vintage beauties and keep them as a keepsake for your children.
These vintage 14kt gold ( marked on the inside) acorn cufflinks are made by B.A. Ballou which has been making cufflinks for over 130 years. As one of the oldest manufacturers of high end cufflinks, they are very hard to come by in 14 kt gold. People usually keep then and don't sell them. These are victorian acorns (The oak, oak leaves and acorn can stand for power, authority or victory. Often seen on military tombs. In parts of Great Britain, young ladies followed a custom of wearing an acorn on a string around their neck. It was believed that this was a talisman against premature aging.)
