Small sparkly fordite silver swivel cufflinks

Description

These unusual swivel backed silver cufflinks feature rounded oblongs of sparkly fordite simply bezel set to allow the bold patterns and colours to stand out. The fordite has a white base with wide bands of bright sparkly blue and cherry red, the two pieces were cut from the same rough so the colours match but the patterns don't due to the way the material forms. These would make a great gift for the gent who like unusual cufflinks or loves his cars.
Not come across fordite before? It is the name given to paint build up that forms in spray booths at car plants, with each car a new layer of paint is added getting cured hard after each one. When the build up gets to a certain thickness it has to be removed and lapidarists discovered that it could be cut and polished to show off the multitude of colours. I believe this material came from Ford's Dearborn plant in Michigan, they produce a lot of rough fordite from around pipes which is referred to as 'Dearborn rollers', I haven't managed to match it to a specific year or model due to the limited colour palette. I cut and polish this material myself (you can see rough in a couple of the photos, this is not included) and have quite a stash from a range of years and factories so if you like the idea of fordite but these aren't quite right drop me a message I might be able to help.
Measures 17mm by 14mm with standard sterling silver swivel backs. Comes gift boxed.
