Description

These colourful cufflinks feature oval cabochons of rare Dagenham fordite which is bezel set in sterling silver. They are finished off with sterling silver swivel backs to make them easy to use. The fordite is stripy with a broad flash of mid blue across the middle flanked by red, white, navy and silver bands, they are a not quite matching pair. These unusual cufflinks would make a great gift for any man who loves his cars (especially if he has a soft spot for cortinas or escorts).
Fordite is layers of cured car paint which builds up in the spray booths getting baked hard in between each colour, careful cutting allows the bands of colour to be revealed. The unique colour palette in this particular material is classic for the fordite harvested from the car production lines at Ford’s plant in Dagenham in the early 1980’s. As painting techniques changed the amount of fordite formed has changed and it is becoming harder to source and vintage material like this is very hard to get. Love the idea of fordite but not these cufflinks? Drop me a message as I’ve been stockpiling material whilst I can so might be able to make you exactly what you want.
Measure 20mm by 15mm with a standard swivel fitting. Comes gift boxed.

Shipping Policy

I aim to ship as quickly as possible normally within 24 hours. For the UK I use either tracked 24 or special delivery which should arrive the next working day whilst for international orders I used international tracked or signed services. International post is subject to delays at the moment, sometimes lengthy due to customs, but since it is tracked you can follow its progress around the world. Buyers are responsible for any customs fees but if you contact me in advance I can help you work out how much these will be.

I am happy to ship gifts direct to the recipient with a message so they know who its from but you will need to specify the recipients address at checkout. I will only ship to the address specified during checkout.

Please see The British Craft House's Shipping policy

Refund Policy

I'm more than happy to refund an order if it turns out to just not be to your liking. Please let me know within 14 days of receiving it and return it within 30 days (you will need to pay the return postage and I strongly recommend using an insured service in case it goes missing). I will refund when the item is back with me and I've checked that it is in its original condition.

Personalised orders can not be refunded unless faulty.

Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy

So long as I've not shipped an item I'm happy to cancel an order.

If you would like me to delete your data I'm more than happy to do so please email me requesting this to happen (you would also need to contact Stripe, the payment processor, asking them to remove the data they have about the transaction).
