Recycled gold cufflinks with diamonds

Before I go any further I must admit to loving these cufflinks! They are so simple and clean and right up my street so thank you Cecily for commissioning me to make them.

The thinking behind this set of cufflinks is that the owner had been borrowing his dad's cufflinks and that perhaps it was time he had a good set of his own. Meanwhile his recent promotion in work was the perfect excuse to treat him to something extra special.

First of all an old gold bracelet and a fine pair of cufflinks were melted in the crucible to create a large flat ingot of gold. This was then passed through the mills until it was large enough to mark out two cufflink sized rectangles. These were pierced and cleaned back before soldering the U-arms in place. Lastly each cufflink was channel set with three small diamonds which came out of another necklace (more of which to come) before a final polish and a directional matt finish.
