These beautiful Scottish Lion cuff links were hand cut using a Great Britain one pound coin. The coin was a special issue and was only minted in 1994. The design on the coin features a Scottish lion which has a great looking outer rim which really makes the finished design just really stand out. The coin was minted in a way where could just use the inner area of the coin which had the unusual pattern on the outside of the rim. After all the hand work is done we plate the cuff links in our 14 karat gold and rhodium finish which accents the entire design. The cuff link backings we use are soldered versus glued for added strength to give years of life to the user.
