Round Kenworth fordite cufflinks

Description

These sterling silver cufflinks feature rounds of multi coloured fordite from the Kenworth truck factory. The fordite is bezel set in sterling silver and the cufflinks finished with standard sterling silver swivel backs for ease of use. The fordite aren't a perfectly matched pair but were cut from the same bit of rough so the colour palette is the same, a mixture of white, red, blue, silver and chocolate brown in a pattern of concentric rings. The rings are less well formed in one of them as the paint layers were very dribbly in the rough and there is a dip in the dome of the cabochon from an indentation in the rough.
Fordite is many layers of cured paint that builds up in the spray booths at automotive factories, this particular material came from the Kenworth plant in Chillicothe, Ohio. Since they make trucks these would make a great gift for anyone who loves trucks (or is involved in shipping logistics) or just loves the unusual. My partner has been vigorously desk testing his fordite cufflinks for years and has yet to scratch them (they have even been through the wash but this isn't recommended) and this colour way would work with any colour suit. Like fordite but want something different? Drop me a message, I cut and polish this material myself (you can see the rough in some of the photos (not included in sale)) so should be able to help you out.
Measure approx 19mm across with standard swivel backs. Comes gift boxed
