Birmingham, UK – Deakin & Francis have announced the launch of their limited-edition cufflinks, designed to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III.
The company’s expert craftsmen have created an exquisite collection of cufflinks that embody the highest standards of fine jewellery-making, reflecting the brand’s legacy of excellence and heritage since its establishment in 1786.
King Charles Cypher Cufflinks
The new King Charles Cypher Cufflinks are available in two distinct styles: oblong and oval, across four iconic colours.
These one-of-a-kind cufflinks feature the king’s cypher and are meticulously crafted using a highly skilled and rare industry technique called vitreous enamelling, where up to six layers of powdered glass are applied by hand to each piece.
These cufflinks are stamped by using traditional manufacturing tools at the House of Deakin & Francis in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
The exquisite design and high-quality craftsmanship of these unique cufflinks are created by Deakin & Francis’ skilled artisans and designers to reflect the King’s refined taste and his reign’s grandeur.
“We are so proud to launch these cufflinks to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III. These are handcrafted products to honour the king, and also celebrating British heritage. We have used age-old jewellery making techniques for over 235 years to deliver impeccable quality throughout our pieces”, said Henry Deakin, Managing Director.
Coronation Emblem Cufflinks
Deakin & Francis created the Coronation Emblem Cufflinks from sterling silver featuring St Edward’s Crown, which His Majesty The King will be crowned with on Saturday 6th May.
The floral motif is a nod to King Charles III’s passion for the natural world. The cufflinks are all handcrafted and then engraved in the House of Deakin and Francis in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
The highlight of these cufflinks is that the emblem features the four nations, characterised by the Thistle (Scotland), Daffodil (Wales), Shamrock (Northern Ireland) and Rose (England).
The oval spring-back cufflinks can be personalised with engraving on the clasps to mark significant dates or initials to add a personal touch to each piece.
St. Edward’s Crown Cufflinks
Deakin & Francis will soon be launching a 3D sterling silver crown cufflink, inspired by the crown worn by King Charles III, showcasing the brand’s support and admiration for His Majesty The King during the coronation.
“We are so proud to present these iconic and exclusive cufflinks to mark the coronation of King Charles III”, says Henry Deakin.
Deakin and Francis is immensely proud to be able to continue to build on the heritage, brand and family values that have been instilled over the past seven generations. Today, British jeweller Deakin & Francis is still as passionate as ever to create unique luxury jewellery and accessories as well as offering a completely bespoke service all manufactured in Birmingham.
With a history spanning over 235 years, Deakin and Francis has played an integral role in celebrating the British monarchy’s rich history and traditions, since the ascension of King George IV in 1820. In 1953, the brand commemorated the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II by creating a range of exquisite sterling silver tea spoons, jam spoons, and butter knives adorned with the coronation motif, which have become cherished collectibles among enthusiasts.
