Retro sterling silver and fordite (Dagenham agate) cufflinks

Retro sterling silver and fordite (Dagenham agate) cufflinks
Love this

Description

These sterling silver swivel back cufflinks have a real retro feeling to them thanks to the colour palette of the fordite they are set with. The fordite discs have a stripy pattern with bands of orange, yellow, brown and cream, very distinctive and very 70's. What's fordite you say? Fordite is layer upon layer of car paint that built up on the rails in the old spray booths and has been baked solid, this particular material is believed to have come from the Dagenham plant in the 1970's but a commercial vehicle production line as the material has loads of corporate colours in it (just show them to someone who remembers the 70's for details). I cut and polish this material myself and the lump of rough is show in the second photo, if you would like a different shape then it should be possible just drop me a message. Would make the ideal gift for a dapper car lover or fan of the 70's.
The front of the cufflinks is approximately round and measures19mm diameter, they have a flat top and are 4mm thick. Fitted with a standard sterling silver swivel back fitting to make it easy to pop into cuffs. Come gift boxed.
