These classic silver cufflinks were re-released in 2011 and are inspired by the simple geometric form that is also evident in other designs from the Collection, such as the sterling silver wave bracelet.
As with all the Collection’s pieces, the cufflinks are made-to-order for customers, using Jens’ original jewellery-making techniques. The cufflinks come with a replica of the original workshop production card, and bear a special edition hallmark, authenticating them as a Legacy collectable.
Halfdan Hansen, Jens’ son and manager of the Nelson Jens Hansen workshop, says the cufflinks are one of Jens’ earliest known designs and were popular in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
“Jens came up with the initial design concepts for these cufflinks while he was living in Auckland, just before he moved to Nelson in the ‘60’s,” says Hansen. “At that time cufflinks were a must have item for most men, and these ones in particular were revered for their shape and form.”
The Legacy Collection is a selection of authentic designs recreated from the Jens Hansen workshops original production notes, each bearing the special edition hallmark and a unique serial number.
