These cufflinks were designed and made in Cornwall using Cornish Tin.
The ingots of tin from which these cufflinks were made were smelted at Chyandour, Penzance in 1862 and lost at sea the following year when the SS Liverpool sank off Anglesey. 138 years later, the cargo of Cornish tin ingots was raised from the wreck, carefully cleaned and used to make this piece of Cornish history. Each pair of cufflinks is supplied with a full history and Certificate of Authenticity. The castings contain a minimum of 10% Cornish tin from the SS Liverpool, blended with other shipwreck and new tin to enhance their durability.
St Piran is the patron saint of tin miners and also the national saint of Cornwall. In medieval times, it's tin industry kept Cornwall fairly independant and largely self-governing. These cufflinks would make an ideal gift for any patriotic Cornishman!
