Italian term or phrase: gemelli finezza 12
this is a fashion translation. I don't think that "gemelli" refers to cufflinks, but I don't know what it is, nor "finezza".

Thank you. I had a suspicion that it was a twinset, but I wasn't sure.

Explanation:
I was not able to find any term for "gemelli" that would apply in this context. Are you sure it is not being used as an adjective?

As far as "finezza", I found the following link where it is translated as "fineness". Good luck!

Landlord s.r.l. produces knitwear with a fineness ranging from 12 to 1 ½ for companies working on a national and international scale. It helps them in the creation of the samples for the agents...
