These miniature works of art actually predate the shirt. According to the 

National Cufflink Society, evidence of their use can be found in ancient 

hieroglyphics in King Tut's tomb. But cufflinks as we know them were first 

used during the 1700s. No one knows exactly when the cufflink arrived. Its first mention in 
writing was in 1788, but for sometime before that buttons had ceased to be 
decorative and cuff-fastening slits were being cut into clothing. The 
ribbons or tape ties of the past were replaced with luxurious items, often 
made with gold or silver and set with gemstones. These were an extravagance 
reserved for the wealthy classes and were all hand-made.
