The rare matching pair of one-of-a-kind, antique brass buttons we chose for these cufflinks depict an albatross, lighthouse, and a ship. They’re the perfect gift for the dads who’ve taught us to take responsibility for our actions and to love all God’s creatures.

The buttons were inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It's about a man on a voyage who impulsively kills an albatross, a heinous act that changes the course of his life. In due time, the mariner comes to understand the depravity of his actions and accepts his penance. He then embarks on a different voyage, one of learning about accountability, acceptance, and forgiveness.

In this piece:

  • Two-piece stamped brass button, circa 1880-1890
  • Antiqued brass cuff link
