The Peter Stuyvesant Ball is an annual event, at which diplomatic envoys, influential leaders and friends of the Dutch-American community from both sides of the pond gather in support of the NAFs activities. It is held in the presence of the NAF’s patrons, Her Royal Highness Princess Margriet of the Netherlands and Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven.
For the 34th edition of the ball -held on 20 November 2015- City Cufflinks® contributed a twinset of both the Amsterdam Canal Cufflinks® and the New York City Cufflinks® in a tailor-made designed twin packaging. Thus marking the bond between the Netherlands and it’s capital (old) Amsterdam and the United States and it’s world renowned New York City, formerly known as New Amsterdam. Linking history with 21th century design.
All in all an impressive cufflink-moment.
