Superstitions can get a little silly, and most of them are based around the concept of luck. Luck involves elements that are out of our control, such as the result of a pair of dice or the draw of a hand of cards. We apply such random elements to the whims of luck if and when they happen in our favor or not as good or bad. Some believe that we, individually, can control luck to some degree or another, that we can make things that happen randomly turn out in our favor, and avoid bad luck by purposely doing things that avert it. Throwing spilt salt over one’s shoulder avoids bad luck, as does trying not to walk under ladders and being careful around mirrors. Whether you believe it’s true or not, a little luck in your favor never hurt and with a set of Chinese Luck Symbol Onyx Cufflinks on your sleeve you can go about your day with just a little something that sways it your way. These gold cufflinks feature a black onyx background with a Chinese character symbol of Luck painted calligraphically in white. Chinese symbol cufflinks allow you to draw some focus of what you want, be it Peace, Happiness, or, in this case Luck, to you with a sense of style and grace without festooning yourself with strange good luck charms that might undermine the overall professional image you’re going for. While you might think it’s silly to believe in superstition, consider that a little belief probably couldn’t hurt, and a little hope for the best in every day is a marvelous attitude to have that allows good things to come your way.
After repeated failures and humiliating setbacks conducted by Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the sinister Soviet counter-espionage department known as SMERSH, a Russian acronym meaning “death to spies,” hatches a fiendish plot to both humiliate the British and to murder whom they consider their best operative, James Bond. Using Bond’s near-insatiable desire for women, they send the beautiful MGB Corporal Tatiana Romanova to Istanbul, and there she says to the MI6 Head of T in Turkey that she will defect with a highly prized Soviet coding machine called a SPEKTOR, but on one condition – that James Bond meet her personally and take her away to England. The bait of a SPEKTOR machine is too irresistible to M, head of MI6, and the trap to kill James Bond and implicate him in an operation gone horribly wrong thanks to a tawdry love affair is sprung, very nearly succeeding. Unlike the motion picture, From Russia With Love doesn’t involve a fictional terrorist organization called SPECTRE and the events actually take place before Bond’s first official film, Dr. No. The James Bond From Russia With Love Cufflinks is an excellent gift to anyone who appreciates the original Sir Ian Fleming novels. Featuring the original cover for From Russia With Love, these silver cufflinks are hand painted reproductions of the British stamp issued in honor of this wonderful novel of spy intrigue that was said to be one of President John F. Kennedy’s favorites. James Bond Cufflinks come in a wide variety of styles and titles, and are marvelous collectors’ items.
It is a common refrain that novels are often better than the films they’re based on. This is because, quite often, the filmmakers have to mold and shape a story into the span of two hours, and as more often the case, have to trim and cut scenes to accommodate this limitation. Sometimes, a novel may involve something a little controversial to the filmmakers themselves. When Casino Royale, the first ever James Bond novel by Sir Ian Fleming was published, the story was about a Soviet agent in France named Le Chiffre’, who had squandered millions of rubles that was given to him by his spy controllers to maintain his trade union operations on his other enterprises on the side that were failing. As a result, he had raised the wrath of SMERSH, the secret Soviet agency that specializes in killing spies, both foreign and domestic. In an effort to square things with Moscow, Le Chiffre’ planned to raise the money by running a baccarat game at the casino in Royale-les-Eaux , France. James Bond is sent there to thwart that operation, thus forcing SMERSH to dispatch one of their own. The film left out the fact that Le Chiffre’ was working for the Soviet Union, because it was felt by the filmmakers that they should not do anything that might be construed as offensive to the communist aggressor. But you know better, and you can show off your own knowledge with the James Bond Casino Royal Marker Cufflinks. These sterling silver cufflinks are exquisitely crafted with the casino chip motif found on the actual British stamp version. This and other James Bond Cufflinks are good enough for even 007 to sport. After all, they have his name on them.

Black is probably one of the most versatile colors in terms of fashion. Depending on the cut and style of clothing or the shade of black – yes, black does have shades – as well as the material used, black can be grungy, sleezy, high fashion, sexy or just plain fun.

Believe it or not, there was a time when the only means of communication with friends or family overseas was through snail mail. Letters were handwritten, folded, placed into an envelope and then the envelope itself, sealed, labeled and stamped.
