Blade Blue Shark Cufflinks

$395.00$589.00

 

These Blade Blue Shark Cufflinks are hand carved slender Blue Sharks. We love the refined look of cufflinks, and these stylised sharks add extra sophistication. Our Blue Sharks are lighter in look and weight than our other sharks, the perfect weight and size for cufflinks. And they look especially sharp with french cuffs!

Blue Sharks 

We adore blue sharks. Blues are a type of requiem shark that are oceanic, pelagic, and prefer the deep ocean in temperate and tropical waters.  Beautiful and distinctive looking, they have long slender bodies and long pectoral fins, and are, as their name indicates, a lovely deep blue color. They grow up to 12 ft long, and are one of the fastest sharks in the sea; some estimate up to 60 miles per hour (97 kph).

​Blue sharks are reportedly the most frequently caught shark species. Targeted for their beautiful fins, studies show populations are declining up to 80% in some regions since the 1980s. They are now classified as ‘near threatened’. ​

Details

These Blade Shark Cufflinks are small-scale sculptures of Blue Sharks – hand carved with attention to scale and detail. We polish the masters in wax, cast in sterling silver, and hand-finish. Each cast low-tarnish silver shark gets ground, filed and hand-polished. Once each shark is finished, we solder them to argentium cufflinks (find out more about argentium in our blog) and give it all another clean and final polish.

 

  • Each pair comes with one curvy, the other wavy. Should you prefer two of the same, just let us know.
  • Both Sharks measure 1.75″ long, but with the curve in the curvy blue, it ends up closer to 1.5″ in length
  • Solid sterling silver or 18K gold vermeil
  • Hand-carved and cast
  • Lead and nickel free
  • Made in Hawaii
