"Perfect gift for Fathers Day!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I brought this as a gift for my father on Fathers Day and he loved it. He was mesmerized by the attention to detail and the gorgeous raw look of the jade stones. His only gripe is that the back plate (where the cuffs align with the shirt) are not as durable as they could be. Otherwise, this is a great product and my best wishes to the artisan. I hope future revisions of these cuff-links can take my recommendations into account... to turn this good product into an eve better one!

"Beautiful earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The earrings I purchased from Sandra Lorena Sajbin are now my favorite earrings. I wear them all the time. They are a very pretty design, lovely stones and very well crafted. They are sturdy and will withstand many wearings. I also like that they have an earwire that closes and will keep me from losing them.

Best Uses

  • everyday or dress wear
