The unmistakable ginkgo leaf is known to symbolize endurance and longevity: ginkgo trees can live for 1000s of years. The street that I lived on in DC for 10 years was lined with enormous ginkgo trees, and when the leaves would fall it would cover the entire street in a bright yellow blanket of warmth. The trees are considered a living fossil, with no known living relatives and over millions of years they have hardly changed. Ginkgoes are a symbol of strength, peace, and hope. Gift these cufflinks to someone with these qualities, or wear them yourself as a reminder to persevere.

Product Info: The front circle of the cufflinks is 0.7" in diameter. The cufflink backings are fixed, with no moving parts, and can simply be slid through to fasten any shirt with French cuffs.
Sterling Silver .925 is 92.5% pure silver (with the remaining 7.5% made up of other metals to give it some hardness).
Plated Gold (Yellow or Rose) is a thin (0.25 micron) layer of gold over top of brass.
Sterling silver can last a lifetime and gets better over time when worn.
Keep silver in a cool, dark, airtight place like a jewelry box or plastic bag.
Silver can tarnish if exposed to moisture in the air, turning it black or dark. Once tarnished, don't worry! It can always be polished back to the original shine.
The lifetime of your plated gold piece depends on handling, how often it is worn, and exposure to humidity, water, + soap. We don’t recommend plated jewelry for rings. Over time, the plating may wear off, exposing the brass base material.
