Funky, Cool, & Swank Cufflinks

Updated on April 9, 2008

Creative, Unique, & Novelty Cufflinks

I started this lens to pay tribute to all the artists who use the cuffs of my shirts as their canvas. There are only a few ways that a man can express himself in a formal environment. For me, nothing beats a nice wrist watch and a pair of swank cufflinks. One of my favorite possessions is a pair of cufflinks that have been in my family for generations. In fact, both my father and I got married wearing them. They are a little over the top, but the great ones always are.

Light Switchs on Your Shirt

At a quick glance these cufflinks might look like any other cufflinks; however, they are not. These unique cufflinks are miniature light switches!

I love the fact that not only are these cufflinks funky and unique, but they are also quite stylish.

Check them out at LinkYourShirt.com

Custom Cufflink

These links are individually modelled on someone you know like a child, spouse, a pet or even a famous person. They're available in a range of precious metals and start at a whopping GBP 225. When they're not hanging from your shirt cuffs, the two halves clip together to create a bust.

The cufflinks are made by Eleven Forty Co

Lawyer cufflinks

Trust me...I'm a lawyer

This is a funny addition to any lawyer's collection. With these cufflinks juries will believe everything you say...trust me. Shiny silver lettering on a black enamel background.

If You Love Red Meat, Say Mooooo

I apologize in advance to all the vegetarians

If you're the type of person that likes to play with your food, then why not go that extra step and wear it! The steaks and plates are hand-sculpted and are securely fasten to the front of the cuff links. The links themselves are shiny silver base metal, and are 15mm in diameter. The tiny steaks are sculpted by hand from polymer clay, then glazed to a shiny, protected finish. Mmmmm, delicious.

A must have for any BBQ king!

Space Invader Cufflinks

Die aliens die!!!!!!!

Okay, I admit it. I still own an Atari 2600 (with wood paneling). So when I first saw these sterling silver cufflinks, I got very excited. If you were a kid in the 80's how can you resist these babies!

Synthesized rocket sounds, multi color aliens, and the fate of the world rests in your hands. Mmmmm, memories from my youth!

Harness the Power of Celebrity Rebels

The spirit of Elvis lives through my cufflinks

Stardust has designed a collection of funky celebrity cufflinks for men. These retro cufflinks include Elvis, Sex Pistols, Dean Martin, Bruce Lee, and even Doctor Who. My favorite is the "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane" pair.

Although they might not have the most intricate design I've seen, there is something powerful about wearing a pair of Frank Sinatra cufflink!

These cufflinks come in a chrome box and are silver plated with a resin domed picture.

There is nothing more embarrassing than showing up at work and realizing that someone else is wearing identical cufflinks...am I right or am I right! Well then these unique cufflinks should cut down the odds of this happening.
