Sterling silver and blue, grey fordite cufflinks

Sterling silver and blue, grey fordite cufflinks
Love this


These sterling silver swivel back cufflinks are set with oval cabochons of stripy sparkly fordite in shades of blue, white, red and silver. What's fordite I hear you ask? Fordite is layer upon layer of cured car paint that built up on the rails and tracks in old spray booths at car plants before they switched to extraction booths and then electro spray. I cut and polished this particular pair of cabochons from rough gathered from one of the Detroit plants probably in the second half of the 90's (early fordite was colourful but not sparkly and the amount of sparkles increased until a peak in the 80's and then the number of colours started to decrease for the standard production lines). Ideal gift for any man who loves his cars (if you are after a particular colour then drop me a message and I'll see if I have any in my stash).
The front of the cufflinks measures 7/8 inch by approx 1/2 inch by 1/8 inch thick (20mm by 15mm by 4mm) and are finished with standard sprung swivel backs for ease of use. Comes gift boxed.
