Inspired by the remarkable photography of Irving Browning, this jewelry celebrates Brownings soulful documentation of New York City.
The landmark cuff links feature the Empire State and Chrysler buildings and are rendered in a high-polished sterling silver and oxidized brass. Cuff link face measures 1 x 0.4.
