White Square cufflinks are a set of ultra classic silver cufflinks with a piece of genuine mammoth tooth set in silver.
Mammoth tooth is a kind of ivory but where ivory from elephants is, of course, undesirable, unethical and definitely excluded, mammoths have been extinct for a long time and their tusks, which may be up to 10,000 years old, are typically excavated in Russia where there are large deposits but where permafrost and inaccessibility makes it difficult to obtain.
White Square cufflinks have a mechanic on the reverse that can be tilted upwards and is spring strained to make the spring stay either closed or open. This feature ensures that the cufflinks will easily slide through the buttonholes on the shirt cuffs. The cufflinks work just as well on single shirt cuffs as well as double shirt cuffs.
Men Up North buys mammoth tooth with selected professional dealers who, at our request, issue a certificate of origin and authenticity. Even a small piece of mammoth tooth is quite expensive and we use it only in designs where the use of the piece of mammoth we have bought is optimal.
We believe this is the case with White Square, where we cut out regular, straight pieces without unnecessary waste of mammoth tooth. The remains that may be left, we use in either unique specimen jewellery or hand away to local jewellery designers.
Rinse in lukewarm water and soap and polish with our polishing cloth (enclosed). We do not recommend silver dip or the like, as such chemicals tend to ruin the surface.
