Chris Harker once lost a much loved and precious cufflink and wondered how to replace it. This started his remarkable journey. He thought there must be a better way to create cufflinks and service customers – he wanted to create a brand of distinction underpinned by strong designs and quality. (He also wanted to create a unique service – if you lose a ONE BOND STREET cufflink we will replace it).
Chris is an engineer by qualification but an artist by heart. He is passionate about build quality and great design. He likes fine jewellery and considers a cufflink to be the perfect small canvas on which to create powerful imagery and content.
He investigated how the best cufflinks are manufactured, and was disappointed in the raw materials being used and design philosophy, and was thus committed to create a superior product. ONE BOND STREET solid silver cufflinks are unique. They are crafted in solid sterling silver and coated with rhodium to enhance their appearance and longevity. Rhodium, a rare precious metal, provides a tough resistant surface and helps to prevent tarnishing. The idea being for the cufflinks to remain as fresh as the day they were purchased.
The designs are unique as they incorporate treasured symbols and content. The classic roundel cufflink collection, inspired by the RAF Spitfire roundel, the cufflink boxes named after the Silverstone race track corners and iconic heritage and classic designs to name but a few.
Every product has its own story whether it incorporates carbon fiber from a racing car or metal from a 747-400, salvaged from a breakers yard in Gloucestershire, UK.
