I'm very fortunate to have such loyal customers and I like take care of them in return. These cufflinks were part of a wider wedding and engagement ring project and involved making 4 sets of personalised cufflinks which were engraved with the initials of the groom, his groom's men and future father-in-law.
To start with I ordered a large length of 4mm silver sheet with the intention of rolling it down to 3mm and in doing so spreading the metal and removing the guillotine squeeze marks at the edges. With this perfectly flat material I then reestablished two flat sides at 90 degrees to each other and marked out my cufflink pairs. At this stage I sent them to assay along with the cufflink swivels so as to avoid the stamp warping the finished cufflinks. I then cut them into individual cufflinks and cleaned them back. Rectangles like squares are a very unforgiving of inaccuracy so it was vital that each side be perfectly flat and at 90 degrees to the next. With the rectangles prepped U shaped cufflink arms were soldered onto the back of each before pre-polishing them and riveting the swivel in place. A final polish and the cufflinks were sent for engraving where the initials were set alternately on the bottom left and right corners and inscribed in a box.
