Leading London jewellery designer, Babette Wasserman has unveiled her latest range of stylish cufflinks. Taking inspiration from the 1950’s, the range mixes unusual colours, reflecting the introduction of the colour pixels of the British Broadcasting Corporation in its heyday of the early ‘50’s. The new range epitomises the dapper, well groomed look of the 1950’s BBC - the bowler hat wearing, walking stick carrying gentlemen of the corporation.
The new designs feature clean lines and geometric shapes and give the 09/10 collection an elegant, polished and well groomed look. Traditional patterns found in tailoring such as pinstripe and plaid have been translated through her striking use of stones and metals to the cufflinks - with new, bright pop-coloured catseye stones with metal inlayed into the stones. Strong new colours such as peach and lavender look sharp against a dark suit and deeper colours such as aubergine and orange bring a warm glow to a crisp white shirt.
Styles in the latest range include:
MACINSTOSH- Beautiful catseye stones, geometric circular patterns inlaid with sterling silver in black, blue and red colour combinations.
PLAID- Catseye stones in contrasting colours, inlaid with metal wire. Available in beige, blue and grey colourways.
BOMBER- Crystal propeller shapes, available in aquamarine and jet.
GRENADE- Solid chunks of gold, rhodium or gunmetal with smooth, carved surfaces.
THUNDER- Beautiful stones inlaid with metal- in mother of pearl, red jasper and sodalite.
BOGART- Hand cut, semi- precious stones set in metal - mother of pearl, sodalite and onyx.
DANDY- Japanese silk, with stitching and semi-precious stones.
