For the globetrotting groom, a set of globe cufflinks is a unique, sophisticated accent that speaks to the husband-to-be’s love for travelling. The cufflink, used to fasten the two sides of the groom’s cuff, is one of the few places in typical men’s wedding dress that allows for flair and pizzazz. Grooms can use the decorative studs to show off their world-travelling personalities.
