ALISTAIR-R X SMYTH AND GIBSON 'DONEGAL GRANITE' CUFFLINKS
Regular price £165.00
Exclusively created for Smith & Gibson by Alistair – we are very proud to present these wonderful locally hand crafted cufflinks from Northern Ireland and like our shirts, each piece is deeply connected and rooted in place.
The granite is found in mountain, hill and moor in the northwest corner of Ireland less than one hour’s drive from where we make our shirts.
The clean patterning of white, grey, transparent crystal and black gives a bold and striking finish to the polished stone, it being secured in a simple channel set to give a classic and elegant look. They are most strikingly worn on a white shirt either in smart attire or more casually. Being a natural material each stone will be uniquely different .
"The challenge is one of finding stone with the integrity, granular size, patterning, colour and aesthetic quality that is ‘right’, in our case, for making cufflinks – a process that involves much collecting, cutting, polishing and discarding" Robbie, Alistair -R
