Tokens & Icons was founded in 1991, when Ward Wallau, recently out of hotel school, decided to utilise his entrepreneurial know-how and transform New York City Transit Authority’s “Y-Cut” subway tokens into cufflinks.
Ward believed the tokens were a logical and creative way to reincorporate an aspect of the city’s rich history into the everyday life of New Yorkers. So of course, these cufflinks became the first collection by Tokens & Icons. Today, Tokens & Icons’ entire range is hand-crafted from, or incorporate, authentic artefacts, including Major League Baseball bats National Hockey League pucks and more.
True to the spirit of Tokens & Icons, comes these Ball Bearings Cufflinks. Leonardo da Vinci showed us all the principles behind friction reducing ball bearings during the 16th Century, and now you can accessorise with authentic ball bearings in the form of these cufflinks. Set in sterling silver, with swivel findings, these cufflinks feature a traditional cage, rolling balls and an inner race, making them a wearable token of scientific advancement.

- Set in sterling silver with a swivel finding.
