The 1st July 2016 marks the 100th Anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Somme. These hand crafted cufflinks are a fitting tribute to those who fell during this famous battle.
Each pair of cufflinks has been made by hand in the jewellery quarters of London and Birmingham and is made from British shell fuses fired during the battle and collected from the historic front line. The stunning red enamel in the centre of each poppy is made from a small amount of finely ground earth that was collected from Gommecourt, Hebutern, Serre, Beaumont Hamel, Thiepval, Ovillers, La Boisselle, Fricourt and Mametz, and red enamel mixed together to create the iconic red colour. Each piece offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of the Somme
Each pair is engraved with Somme 100 and 1916-2016 on the stem and arrives in a lacquered wooden presentation box with an illustrated Certificate of Authenticity.
Minor surface imperfections and flaws may exist in the Somme 100 Poppies due to the use of century old ex-battlefield metal, but such only adds to the item’s character, individuality and charm.
