These cufflinks are made using an antique Victorian “seal wheel” dating back to the late 1700’s, early 1800’s. Whimsical seals that conveyed the sentiments of the sender were popular with the ladies of the Victorian era, who would have these wheels with various sentiments to choose from. This antique may have sealed marriage proposals, words of comfort to a dear friend…
The seal depicts the a deer, or stag, resting in a clearing. In heraldry, the stag was used to symbolise one who will not fight unless provoked; peace and harmony. The tranquility of the dear also symbolises virtue and purity.
These cufflinks are made out of fine silver (99.9% pure), and hand stamped with an antique wax seal of a deer. They are then securely soldered to cufflink backings.
Each seal is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these pendants are truly unique, and no two pendants are the same (unlike pendants cast from a mold).
DIMENSIONS: The cufflink face is approximately 1/2″ across.
