Support the Arts

With some cuff links from the Metropolitan Museum of Arts store. What a unique gift! Each item tells a story: " Cloisonné is a technique that combines metalwork and enameling to produce vividly detailed designs on glass or ceramic surfaces. First developed in the Near East, commercial trade brought cloisonné to the Byzantine Empire and from there it traveled along the Silk Road to China. Today, this technique remains widely employed in the production of Asian art objects. Our cuff links are based on the symbol for “long life,” which decorates a cloisonné and enamel plate from China (Qing dynasty, 1644–1911) now in the Museum’s collection.” 24K gold plate, with enamel. Diameter 3/4 in. $65 for non-members, $58.50 for members.
