It’s Hip to Be Square: Adding an Edge to Your Accessories

“Once I am in the square circle, I am in my home.” Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

Square Cufflinks

While traditional cuff links have taken a rounded shape, designers have always pushed the edges for sharper lines and more square shapes. Not everything in the world is as symmetrical as a circle, and that may include your personality! Since it’s always important to mirror your personality in your style, today we’re taking a look at three bold options for square and angled cuff links.


The Curved Square Gemstone Cuff Link

Curved Square Onyx CufflinksThe Curved Square Gemstone Cuff Link in vibrant and textured blue lapis from Jan Leslie is an ideal way to combine the dominant statement of a square with an energized color. The thick sterling silver hardware of the cuff link adds a definitive boldness. Inside of the hardware, blue lapis gemstone gives a rich, multi-tonal and textured color. This cuff link is an ideal complement to a power suit, particularly when paired with an equally rich blue tie or pocket square. An eye-catching accent to a black suit and white shirt, these cuff links take the traditional square shape and individualize it with a subtle curve.




Checker CufflinksBlack and White Checkered Cuff Links

Why accent with just one square when you can have eight? Crafted from bold black onyx and set in 925 sterling silver, these cuff links can go from casual to formal and always complete your look with a distinct attention to detail. They’re ideal for events where you may need to walk a red carpet, but they’re also a distinctive accent piece when paired with a black button-up shirt for a night in at a VIP table in a Vegas club. For added boldness, pair them with a red tie or pocket square. And of course, for the man who can never have too much checker pattern, pairing these cuff links with a shirt with a smaller checker pattern can create an optical style illusion that’s surprisingly sophisticated in its effect.




Rectangular Mother of Pearl cufflinksElongate with Rectangular Cuff Links

True rectangles aren’t the only way to give your accent piece an edge. In addition to square styles, there are rectangular styles and even hexagons to consider. Jan’s Thick Rectangular Gemstone Cuff Links are crafted from your choice of iridescent white mother-of-pearl or deep black onyx gemstone. Like the Square Domed Gemstone Cuff Links, they also have extra thick 925 sterling silver hardware for that extra ounce of boldness. Why a rectangle instead of a square? Because variety is the spice of life and don’t want to look the same every day any more than you want to eat the same thing for breakfast every day.
