The cufflinks are in wonderful conditon and very wearable.
Guilloché is a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material via engine turning, which uses a machine of the same name. This mechanical technique allows for delicacy, precision, and closeness of line. Translucent enamel is then applied over guilloché metal giving a beautiful effect - this became very popular in the Edwardian era and was exemplified by firms such as Fabergé.
