Herbert Begaye is well-known for his handsome silver and gold jewelry, but did you know he occasionally works with stones as well?
In these cufflinks, the past repeats itself, but in a streamlined, more refined version.
In traditional Navajo jewelry, the stones were the most important element, and the silverwork took a supporting role. This fine jeweler keeps that tradition alive in his own designs, that echo the past but reflect the present.
These cufflinks are simple and powerful, a silver and black statement for each wrist. The star of each cufflink is of course the large black Onyx cabochon, surrounded by a simple bezel and a small amount of silver on all sides.
This pared-down version of past styles looks fresh and modern. The stones are the stars, and the whole has a very contemporary, clean, look.
Beautiful, natural stones, a good weight of silver, a design with a modern flair that is also comfortable, and expert workmanship, make for a classic of the future.
