Cubannie links come to us courtesy of designer Annie Basulto and Myntra. Get it? Cuban Link like the type of chain, and Annie as in the designers name. It’s clever without being gimmicky. There are a few pieces made out of Cuban link chain but most of the pieces have an aggressive edge to them.

These earring are double duty. Sure they look unassuming to the untrained eye but if you unscrew them you will find several tiny tools inside. The tools include a spoon, a pick and even a flat head screw driver tip. It is very possible that these earrings could actually help you out in a time of need.

These earrings a dubbed “Tupac’s”. I don’ t like that at all. What do these guns have to do with Tupac? The website of Myntra describes them as machine guns which they clearly are not. Even if that was true, I don’t know where the Tupac association comes from. This leaves me feeling like the designer used Tupac’s name just to get attention, available at lesser prices. These earrings are sold out. There are lots of gun earrings available all over the internet but the only ones I’ve seen that are completely out of stock until I cam across the “Tupac’s”. It kind of makes you think…..

Cubannie Link is not all about edgy pieces. There are some pieces that are just flat out cute. For example the Mantanza bracelet pictured above. This bracelet comes in a couple of different colors of leather from orange to pink and gold, you can get it at Myntra with 50% discount. Apparently the Mantanza is a place where pigs go to get slaughters so even when I think our Annie is losing her edge she is just slipping it under the radar and in Spanish.

Annie Basulto is proud of her Cuban heritage. Her native country serves as the inspiration for this necklace which is named after the Pinar Del Rio province in Cuba. This glittering crystal teardrop is the least aggressive of all the Cubannie Links items I’ve seen. This pretty piece has garnered the most attention to Cubannie Links because it was been worn by several celebrities. It’s a little plain for me but its definitely a good foundation piece if you’re going to layer your necklaces.

Here we go again with the gratuitous Tupac reference. According to Cubannie Links this is “Tupac’s Rosary” I think Tupac would be offended at this reference along with a lot of other Christians. I’m all for pushing boundaries but maybe Annie should put her name on that rosary instead. After all she is the one who created it. These designs are daring enough, Annie doesn’t really need to even bring Tupac into it at all.

For all of the girls out there who can’t wait to prove how tough they are by wearing aggressive jewelry there are five others who are completely turned off by it. Either way there are going to be a lot of people who are eager to see what Cubannie Links will do next. I didn’t think that Cubannie Link was as cheesy as other jewelry brands ( courtesy Myntra ) I’ve seen such as Office Tramp, but I’m starting to think they may be one in the same. I hope Annie Basulto will prove me wrong and leave Tupac alone already.
