Bespoke, handmade British design of the finest quality that dates back to the Industrial Revolution. Jewellery pieces oozing personality to bring something different to your style. This month we are celebrating Deakin & Francis, a brand Michael Jones Jeweller are proud to represent. Have a look at our favourite pieces from Deakin & Francis and make your outfit that little bit more special. Menswear has taken the spotlight in recent times with references to the sartorial history and fashions of Saville Row and classic tailoring. From witnessing the tailored suits of a Peaky Blinder, and the appeal of a second chance at roaring twenties fashion, the classic British suit is top of many men’s fashion lists. Exemplary British fashion is sophisticated and needs the perfect accessories to put the look together. This is where cufflinks come in. Something so small can have a huge impact on the overall effect of a menswear look.

The Classic Cufflink.

Every gentleman needs a classic pair of cufflinks. A small, unobtrusive accessory, but a finishing touch that will transform your image. Cufflinks are smart, put-together and the perfect accessory for the sartorially adept individual. Your staple cufflink set does not have to be plain. Add an edge to the design with a jewel such as black onyx. The Deakin & Francis oval onyx cufflinks look smart but have a darker, more mysterious edge. Black onyx is a protective and soothing stone, a good one to wear. Classic style never has to be boring.

Bespoke British.

Classic British menswear is tailored, understated and always the perfect fit. To master this classic menswear look, the perfect accessory is required. Why not pay homage to the heritage of British tailoring with a hand-enamelled, patriotic sterling silver Union Jack cufflink. A small pop of colour, but quintessentially classic heritage. Deakin & Francis are experts in taking a classic jewellery piece and making it interesting, a bit more personal and an easy way to add character to your style. The pieces never compromise quality and, despite having a playful edge, the cufflinks are always made with high quality in mind, incorporating precious metal and gemstones, often made with vitreous enamel and sterling silver.

Sophisticated Style Made Fun.

Weddings, formal dinners, meetings or even just walking down the street are all opportunities to show off your individual style. This could be as simple as the accessories you wear, a subtle sign of your fun side. At first glance, a kooky hairy Viking cufflink may strike you as a gimmick. But look closely, and the sterling silver Deakin & Francis rendition of a fun piece actually contains beautiful detailing, with ruby gemstone eyes set into a black oxidised helmet.

Feeling sweet? A beautiful blue cufflink sweet in a masculine square design will show a flash of fun in your otherwise sophisticated cuffed shirt. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll be addicted to the sugar rush of these tiny but intricate pieces.
