These Scottish Thistle cuff links were hand cut from a British two pound coin that was only minted in 1988. The coins were issued to celebrate the Scottish Highland games that year. The design was taken off the coin and is a variation of our stock number 138 pendant. After all the cutting is done we solder the cuff link backings on the back of the thistle and go into the plating process where we finish the cuff links in 14 karat gold and rhodium. The size is great for cuff links and measures right around 3/4″ in diameter. They are a great addition to any ones jewelry collection.
