Cufflinks in Australia
Cufflinks in Australia
A few cufflink businesses in Australia have opened their doors recently – each of them with their own approach and ideas about the designing of their cufflinks. One unique approach in the designing of cufflinks, can be found at Cuff and Co Australia.
Cuff and Co Australia
The motivation behind the founding of Cuff and Co Australia was the idea to show off the heritage of Australia. Someone bought a bag full of Australian half pennies from a local garage sale. This caused nostalgia, as well as the urge to find a new purpose for these coins that served their country well over many years. The idea of transforming these coins into elegant cufflinks for men (and women) then took root, and the business was founded. This original idea contribute to the uniqueness of the product of Cuff and Co Australia. Whereas there are other business in Australia selling elegant cufflinks, they are mostly in traditional style. The coin cufflinks therefore sets this product apart from the rest.

- Benjamin Cufflinks
The business of Benjamin Cufflinks was founded in 2004 by an Australian businessman, Benjamin. His motivation for starting the business was simple frustration. He was tired of uninteresting and expensive cufflinks in the shops. For this reason, he started with the cufflink collection of his business in Australia, by ordering the best quality cufflinks from abroad. On the website of his business, he encourages men to buy shirts with French cuffs, in order to be able to express their individuality and ‘intelligent side’ through the use of cufflinks.

In order to keep costs low for the customer, they offer the choice to the customer to order the cufflinks with a normal black box (for free), or with a nice metallic box, in the case of buying a gift for someone. They declare on their website to offer fast service.
