These retro cufflinks feature oval ish cabochons of vintage fordite bezel set in sterling silver finished off with easy to use sterling silver swivel backs. The fordite is oval ish (perhaps more kidney shaped) with gently curved lines in yellow, orange, cream, black and mint green. 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 automotive factories, with each vehicle a new layer of paint is added getting baked hard after each one. When the build up gets thick 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 the Ford plant in Dagenham (Essex) and the slightly thicker layers suggests that it has come from a transit van line where they would do fleets in the same colour. This is an older fordite from I think the 70’s and my dad tells me that the colours are consistent with BT and TNT vans at the time (I’m not old enough to remember the 70’s so I have to take his word for it). I cut and polish this material myself (you can see the 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.

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.

My address for returns is 4 Fanshawe Road, Cambridge, CB1 3QY. Although not obligatory please get in touch before returning something.

GDPR policy. Obviously I need to collect certain data about you to process orders (namely name, address and email, I never get to see any of the payment card details) these details will be stored securely online for as long as HMRC requires me to keep them for tax auditing purposes. I will never use them for anything other than processing your 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).
