'Canals of Amsterdam' cufflinks by Robert Admiraal

You get the best view of the pattern of the Amsterdam canal ring from the air. This image was the inspiration for these unusual cufflinks. Designer Robert Admiraal created them to celebrate the 400-year jubilee of the Amsterdam canal ring (2013). The most characteristic part of Amsterdam in the form of silver cufflinks: a subtle signature.

Handmade & sterling silver

The 'Canals of Amsterdam' cufflinks are 100% handmade, created from 925 silver, otherwise known as sterling silver. We deliver these cufflinks in gift packaging that includes a flyer describing the origins of Amsterdam's canals. The 'Canals of Amsterdam' cufflinks are also available in 18-carat gold-plated silver.

The Amsterdam canal ring

The Amsterdam canal ring is immediately recognizable from aerial photos and maps thanks to the characteristic semi-circular shape formed in the city centre by Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. This canal ring was constructed during the Golden Age (1600-1700) and through the centuries has developed into one of the most unique places in the world, named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. The network comprising various waterways was originally made for drainage and land reclamation for the city's expansion. The canal ring was initially built for practical reasons, but the area later developed into an environment that characterizes the city. Wealthy merchant financiers invested their money in building houses along the canals. This is how the Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht came into being.

Canal festival

Every year in August, the annual Canal Festival takes place. If you enjoy open-air concerts, you should not miss the unforgettable Prinsengracht concert, which brings the Canal Festival to a close.
