Whitby Jet cufflinks to celebrate Yorkshire Day 2020
Many months ago Chris had an idea for these Yorkshire inspired sterling silver cufflinks. When lockdown hit it gave us more time to consider the design, and then we were delighted to be offered two internships by Sheffield Hallam University, which drove the project on. Talented graduates Daniel Brocklehurst and Cory Shaw have been working with us to get the cufflinks ready for our Yorkshire audience in time for 1st August 2020. The project has come to fruition and we are very proud to see Chris’s idea come to life and be able to offer them for sale. We are only making these wonderful cufflinks to order, handcrafted from our workshop. This luxury pair are set with Whitby Jet and a 6pt diamond. The backs have been hallmarked with a feature Yorkshire Rose assay mark from Sheffield Assay Office, but if you would like to have initials engraved on the backs instead we can of course use this space for that. That is the beauty of ordering a bespoke pair, the decisions are yours! If you are interested in ordering a pair at £722.50 please contact us so we can discuss the options with you.
Aside from the new Yorkshire Rose cufflink, customers can either choose from a catalogue of items we have in stock or we can make cufflinks, dress studs and tie slides to the requirements of individual customers using techniques which include hand-engraving, painting, tiled or mosaic work and the setting of precious and semi-stones.
How the bespoke process works
In consultation with you, we either draw up a design based on your idea or work from an existing design like a logo, crest or letterhead. We then produce the artwork, submit it for your approval, source, where necessary, and cut the materials, and make the finished article.
Each bespoke item is hand-made or finished in our Sheffield workshop. We always try to involve the customer as much as possible in the process and visits to the workshop can be arranged by appointment.
Hand engraving gives depth and quality which CADCAM laser engraving somehow misses. We only need your letterhead or any picture and we will then make design suggestions to you in either bar link or swivel cufflinks.
Once the master is engraved, at a ‘one-off’ cost all subsequent cufflinks would be priced at normal cufflink prices.
We can engrave family crests, initials, names, coats of arms, mottos, golf clubs, associations or company logos.
Please contact us with your suggestion so we can confirm the minimum order required.
