Charms "Star"

This model’s prototype is the Soviet five-pointed gold star with an evocative ribbed surface. Besides, the starred pentagon (or pentalfa) is one of the ancient symbols in the history of mankind. Pythagoreans believed that it was the symbol of health and would often use it in their written messages to each other instead of the words “wishing you health”. Pentalfa was seen as the most perfect geometrical figure expressing the beauty of the world. The cufflinks in pink gold with diamonds and rubies.

Charms "GTO1972"

This model was inspired by “GTO” badge designs of 1938 and of 1972. “Prepared for Labour and Defence” (GTO in Russian abbreviation) was a sports training programme launched in 1930-is. On 28-29 August 1938 the first USSR All Around GTO Championship took place in Moscow. To commemorate this event, a renewed line of badges was issued. These badges have become the prototype for cufflinks model “GTO 1938”. In 1972 the symbols of GTO underwent their last alterations to reflect the changes in the programme itself. That line of badges inspired the model line “GTO 1972”.
