Antique Gold Cufflinks by Bernhard Hertz Danish

Louise Christine Rasmussen had an amazing life. Born to unwed parents in 1815, she would go on to marry the King of Denmark and would be a lifelong patron of women who were poor and destitute. She was considered the ‘morganatic’ wife of the King, meaning that she was not equal to him in either title or rank, and was never considered ‘Queen’, although she was titled Countess of Danner. The King married her in 1849 and in 1858 he purchased for her an arm ring made by the goldsmith Bernhard Hertz who would use the money from the sale to set up his own business, which still exists today under the name of Lund Copenhagen.

These fabulous golden cufflinks were made by Hertz, in about 1910, of 14 karat gold. They are marked with B.H and 585 indicating the maker and gold content. The links are 17 x 13.7 mm on the tops and weigh 6.8 grams together. They have a fantastic Art Nouveau, Jugenstil motif and a classic, timeless look.

Every man should own at least one pair of fantastic cufflinks and while I’d encourage you to own many, if you are only going to have one, I’d suggest these, they’re the Goldilocks of cufflinks, not too big, not too small, not too flashy but enough to get noticed.
