Fred Paris Lapis Lazuli Baton Cuff Links


Created in the late 20th century by Fred, Paris, these cuff links are composed of lapis lazuli and 18K gold. Each double link is designed as a rectangular baton bound by a ridged mount, and joined by a gently curved bar to a smaller conforming lapis baton with a swivel closure. Beautifully made with rich blue lapis, these classic Fred Paris cufflinks make the most streamlined and stylish possible finish for a formal dress shirt.
