The Matrix, the movie. Keanu Reeves first put on his mac and dark glasses back in 1999. The machine overlords that were enslaving humanity had met their match, the slow falling raindrops and the super-flexible back flips provided the backdrop for sequels, black shades and home videos.
Our Matrix Sterling Silver Cufflinks are all about structure and order but not world domination and enslaving humanity. Parallel and perpendicular lines captured in a circular gold plated sterling silver setting. The contrast between the round structure and ordered weave matrix create a stunning cufflink.
The weave is made by stands of silver crisscrossing above and below each other and then rhodium plated to defy the tarnishing gods that blacken lesser products.
Sterling silver tarnishing is not oxidizing. Tarnishing is the process of the sterling silver reacting with moisture and sulphur in the air causing the blackening. So if you live in areas of high humidity and air pollution you will see your silver goods tarnishing quickly. That’s why you should try to always have your silver items rhodium plated. It’s an expensive process and an expensive element but at ONE BOND STREET we pride ourselves in providing our clients with the very best – unlike many of our competitors who simply don’t bother with rhodium.
We now have the Matrix design, the rhodium plating and now we need the cufflink. Again, solid sterling silver and hallmarked in London, the whale back cufflinks have a solid click when the foot is locked and, whilst we haven’t stared in any movies lately, we can expect them on the big screen soon.So, if you are looking for something a little bit different, a gift with meaning and history, then ONE BOND STREET could help. We have a range of sterling silver cufflinks that say that little bit more about you. Live Fast, Dress Well.
