On The Cuff

ames E. McMillan shakes a lot of hands, closes major deals, and occasionally settles disputes. As an attorney who practices entertainment, sports, and fashion litigation at his law firm in New York City, McMillan intends on making a firm impression every time he enters a room. “It’s a whole aura that speaks to success and power,” explains McMillan. “When I walk into a room, I want to command attention.”

McMillan prefers custom-made clothing and believes cuff links make the ultimate statement in detail — even when he’s sporting jeans and a button-down shirt.”Cuff links are an area where one can be more creative and distinguished.” He has over 200 pairs. McMillan’s collection includes high-end links from Tiffany and Gucci, yet his favorite finds are vintage.

Hand to Wrist
Just in time for holiday shoppers, Robert Talbott presents links bearing artistic period themes: deco, art nouveau, and minimalism. All hand-crafted in sterling silver and 22k white and yellow gold, many also support precious and semi-precious stones. Price range: $325 — $1,200.

London Links
Considered the finest in male accessories, Longmire offers a rich selection, including the Stirrup Ruby link, which wraps around the outside of the cuff with a locking bar. Calibre cut rubies are mounted within solid 18k yellow gold — a stunning standout for $11,683.
