Right then welcome to the first in my series on Cufflinks.
I’m a big fan of Cufflinks — I think they complete the ensemble. Rarely will you see me without cufflinks. However I have to say I’m not much of a fan of silly ones. Homer Simpson, you know, that sort of thing. My preference is something a little more refined. Anyway standby for a regular post highlighting a pair of cufflinks that’s caught my attention recently.
The first entry in the series is from the jewellers, Dominic Walmsley. Dominic’s celebrity clients tend to be of the more intellectual types and include Antony Horovitz, Helen Mirren, and Coffie Annan however Kylie was featured in Hello wearing one of his diamond shoe pendants.
These caught my eye: Veni, Vidi, Vici (as pictured above)
There’s something about the succinct statement that appeals — it’s especially fitting if you’re complimenting them with a super-sharp suit. It was supposedly made by Caesar regarding his short war with Pharnaces II of Pontus in the city of Zela in Turkey: I came, I saw, I conquered.
And you can have that phrase immortalised on your wrists thanks to Dominic Walmsley. You can order online or pick them up in his Sevenoaks store.
They’re silver sterling and priced at £75. They’re also available in Gold.
