Eye popping cuff-links for the Diamond Jubilee from Deakin & Francis

British based Jewellery manufacturers Deakin & Francis (Twitter – @cufflinks1786) find an alternative way to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.  With this historic milestone they have created a limited edition design, of which only 12 pairs of cufflinks will be made to mark 2012, the year of the Jubilee.

The cufflinks are made from 18ct white gold and plenty of diamonds. However, they wouldn’t be Deakin & Francis cufflinks without their trademark twist. The cufflinks are based on the original Deakin & Francis skull design cufflinks and with opening jaws and popping diamond eyes (0.16cts), they are truly unique. Sporting a purple velvet and diamond-encrusted crown (a further 0.24cts) even Prince Philip would be proud to own a pair.

Each pair will be marked with the official Diamond Jubilee hallmark, which shows Queen Elizabeth in a diamond surround All this for a reasonable £8,575.00, and available direct from Deakin & Francis website or Harrods.

Also available from the Deakin & Francis limited edition Diamond Jubilee range are silver skull & crown cufflinks and silver crown cufflinks set with rubies & sapphires.
