Important jewels should be examined closely from every direction.  The backs of the cufflinks, shirt studs and vest buttons are crafted in 14kt gold polished to a bright finish.  Note the sturdy quad (four-footed) brackets, links and cross bars that secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  The shirts studs and vest buttons are equally well crafted.
