 Kaiser Wilhelm II's Personal Cufflinks by the Royal House Jeweler Sy & Wagner in Original Presentation Case (Item SPECIAL ITEMS; WILHELM 8-13; KJEWELRY 3-15)

DESCRIPTION: At this time, we are extremely proud to present and offer the greatest royal article that we have ever handled. It is is a set of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s personal cufflinks. They were produced by the greatest Prussian royal house jewelers, Berlin’s famed firm of Sy & Wagner. This illustrious corporation was known for producing many high-end Imperial German orders and decorations, and even more importantly, superb jewelry for the German Empire’s royal houses. The cufflinks are housed in an equally splendid Sy & Wagner presentation case. (PLEASE NOTE: During the Imperial German era, cufflinks were the preferred method for securing a gentleman’s shirt cuffs, and the higher one's station in life—particularly when attended by great wealth—the more elaborate the cufflinks.) No Imperial German personage held a more exalted position than Kaiser Wilhelm II, and he certainly spared no expense in surrounding himself with that position’s regal trappings. Sy & Wagner was the producer of the famed very special naval dagger that the exceedingly proud Kaiser presented to his son, Prince Adalbert, as the young man entered the Kaiserliche Imperial Marine.

Let's stop here and consider these magnificent cufflinks.

An irregular gold band frames the interior of each one’s obverse. (AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE: We are speaking of 14K gold, here. A higher gold content displays a much brighter shade of the precious metal, although the 14K gold section of the cufflinks reveals an extremely attractive patina.) The handsome blue-enamel surfaces contained within the cufflinks’ borders are embedded with sublimated rays that sparkle like moonlight on the ocean. Wilhelm II’s royal cypher is featured against the enamel background beneath a gold Hohenzollern crown. A small, cut diamond serves as the "W"’s focal point. (We at Germania International are no gemologist, but the diamond appears to be of very high quality). Each cufflink’s reverse is also made of gold. Both have short, gold chains attached to their reverses. Also, each one sports a small, gold crossbar for securing it through each shirt cuff’s buttonhole. The cufflink set's presentation case measures 3 inches by 2 inches across the top and is about 1 inch deep. It boasts a majestic, royal-purple, velvet cover, whose center lid displays a gold Hohenzollern crown. Inside, the case’s upper half is lined with luxurious white silk that has been handsomely embossed with the following information. (Beneath the image of a crown [probably Prussian, as it is NOT a Hohenzollern crown], is the following manufacturer’s information.
