Here's a nice pair of vintage Jeanine Payer sterling silver cufflinks. "The more joy we have, the more nearly perfect we are", is the quote by Baruch Spinoza on the faces of these 'links. Each face measures 7/8" x 7/16", and the pair weigh 21.6 grams. Condition is vintage excellent with no damage, but there is some light wear (buffable micro-scratches) and some tarnish. One cufflink has one round soldered silver ring between the two 'halfs', and the other cufflink has three soldered silver rings between the two. I'm not sure if that's by design or not, but it is worth noting - if another two rings are necessary on the one 'link, then I believe a jeweler could easily do that for low cost. Stamped with Jeanine Payer's characteristic teeeeeeny hallmark, along with '925' on one cufflink. Nice vintage solid sterling silver cufflinks by a well known designer.

Guaranteed to be original and authentic as described. Make sure to check my other listings for jewelry and other good stuff.

I'll plan to ship these carefully packed via USPS First Class or Parcel Post, UPS or FedEx ground for a flat rate of $1.95. Five dollars starting bid & no reserve. Make sure to read my shipping/payment instructions and my m e page for additional useful information. Thanks!

Since eBay has eliminated charging additional fees for postal insurance, my shipping costs have had to go up moderately, but I hope not too badly. Shipping fees charged by USPS, UPS and FedEx have really increased and I do my best to pack both securely and economically. My response to eBay's policy change is this: All my items are sent (money back) guaranteed to arrive undamaged - insurance may be purchased at my discretion for no added fee. I electronically track all my items and now ship only within the United States. If your package arrives in a clearly damaged state, please take a photo of it before and after opening and save all the original packing materials. Contact me ASAP if your item itself is damaged and we'll go from there. I've only had one item among over a thousand items ever damaged in shipping. It was the shippers fault and I had to fight through a tedious and absurd long-distance claims process, but after several months I finally came out ahead - receiving my proper settlement. Having said all that, your items are covered whether they have an 'insured' stamp on the package or not. No partial refunds - any damaged items must be returned to me to qualify for a full refund. International bidders take note : If you decide to bid despite my U.S. shipping only policy, be prepared to pay for Registered or Insured shipping service via USPS ( minimum 15.00 for any item) and also full (ending auction price) value declaration on Customs forms. No whining. That being said, if you're an International bidder and feel the desire to bid, please enquire first by e-mail. I reserve the right to cancel your International bid unless shipping charges are discussed first.
