Everything I Now Want After Attending the Masters

From cars to clothes to bourbon, covetable things abound at the most prestigious...

Look once at former estate jeweler Michael Kanners's frog cuff links and you'll notice the Burmese jade. Look twice and you'll catch the crown and a cartoonish pair of gold lips. "What I strive for in all my work," says the 37-year-old, now based in Italy, "is a unique design, the finest material, and a bit of wit." Clearly. Other examples are crafted from moonstone and rock crystal (a car with see-through windows) and jasper (books bearing dollar and euro symbols; BUY and SELL on the backs). Kanners's designs have been a hit with men searching for cuff links that are neither overly stuffy nor just another whimsical gimmick. $2,050-$4,350. By appointment only, 917-912-1302.
