The Florentine designer’s cuff links are intricate and opulent. Made of 18-karat gold, each pair comes embedded with diamonds, sapphires, and other precious gems. In lieu of precious stones, Ricci sometimes incorporates crocodile links.
All of Ricci’s cuff links have a personal connection to the designer. He conceived a pair of hedgehog links because the word Ricci in English means hedgehog. Other favorites are birds of prey (falcon or bald eagle), because they are majestic and one of the few animals Ricci, an avid hunter, refuses to shoot.
