Stock traders in London long ago posted offers on bulletin boards. Boards full of offers—or “bulls”—signified a booming market; a bare—or “bear”—board meant the market was down. Hundreds of years later and an ocean away, the terms bull and bear still represent market trends. So financial gurus will relish a nod to their passion with these custom cuff links. The links were crafted at Leo Alfred Jewelers in Dublin from hammered 14-carat gold and sterling silver. This set—the only one created—is $1,200.
