I was looking for some really nice Go stone cufflinks to buy, but couldn't find anything around that I liked... so I made my own. They are real slate and shell stones from Japan. The backings are made of sterling silver. These are probably the nicest cufflinks that I own now.

I made a few more in case anyone else who has to wear suits wants to add some Go to their outfit.

Here is the Etsy store I started.

Thanks.

Online playing schedule: Every tenth February 29th from 20:00-20:01 (if time permits)
Over 30 years ago my first wife made me some go cuff links. She did not ask me first but took a black and a white stone out of my set to make them. I would much rather have had a complete set of go stones than a set of cuff links. Fortunately she used the glass set. Fortunately my current wife of 25 years has the sense not to do anything like that.

Still officially AGA 5d but I play so irregularly these days that I am probably only 3d or 4d over the board (but hopefully still 5d in terms of knowledge, theory and the ability to contribute).

I assume you dissolved her well in that acid tank in your basement.
