The Cybermen are a fictional race of Cyborgs who are among the most menacing and persistent enemies of Doctor Who.

Cybermen were originally a species of humanoids originating on Earth’s twin planet called Mondas that began to add more and more parts to their bodies as a means of self-preservation. This led to the Cybermen becoming the logical and calculating Cyborg creatures with every emotion removed from their minds.

These Cybermen cufflinks do not have brains or minds and can be safely stored in your cufflink box at home, without fear of them coming to life.

Cybermen are almost completely built around weaponry, apart from their own bodies. When first seen in The Tenth Planet, they had huge energy weapons that were attached to their chests. In Moonbase, the Cybermen had 2 types of weapons. The first was an electrical discharge from their hands, which stunned the target, and also a type of gun.

England Rugby Rose Cufflinks are now part of an exclusive range of jewellery and gifts for Men and women from The London Silver Company.com.

The England Rose is an official registered trademark of the Rugby Football Union and is subject of extensive trade mark registrations worldwide

The England Rugby team has always worn a red rose emblem on the left breast of their shirts

There is no evidence to explain exactly why the Rugby Football Union chose it in 1871 for England’s first international match which was incidentally against the “auld enemy” Scotland.  It was even then displayed on a white jersey /shirt. The England rose was first officially adopted by the RFU in 1920 and replaced with a new ‘corporate’ rose (above) in June 1999.

There are several potential reasons why a red rose was adopted:

The royal English rose is red and white.  It was created to symbolise the end of the “War of the Roses” and the  marriage between the houses of Lancaster (Henry VII) and York ( Elizabeth 1).

The ‘England rose’ is not therefore red. However, but as Elizabeth won,she continued to use the red rose because they were descended from the House of Lancaster. So, it is the red rose that is seen as an emblem of England and English monarchy.This is probably why the RFU selected the red rose and why its so popular with the Royals today.

Prince Harry is a big England Rugby fan and he proved it recently by recording a You Tube piece to camera to cheer on the England Rugby team at the recent QBE internationals.

The “new” England Rose was

It was Alfred Wright, an RFU employee, who standardised the use of the England rose by the RFU on England jerseys. Wright was first employed as a clerk in 1919 and subsequently became Administrative Secretary of the Union.

These England Rugby Rose Cufflinks are linked with a silver chain to a Rugby ball and weigh over 18gms and are available at £109.

Silver Lockets on Silver Chains

A Silver Locket is a pendant that opens to reveal a photograph or a lock of hair. A silver locket is normally given to a loved one on the occasion of a christening, wedding and of course Valentines day.

Strange but true but it became a tradition to give a locket to a relative at a funeral in Victorian times. Perhaps this is where the curl of hair in a silver locket originates from.

Silver Lockets are usually worn on a chain around the neck, but are sometimes added to charm bracelets. A silver locket normally carries the photograph of the person that gave it as a present or gift, but it might justy have a photograph of both of the loving couple.

Some bespoke lockets can hold up to 6 photographs. Silver lockets are made in different heart shapes and sometimes have a glass front to display a curl of hair, when you don’t want to open it all the time.

Silver lockets were popular in era’s when personal hygiene wasn’t at its best. The locket was made in a filigree style with a small cushion or pad attached to the inside wherby perfume was dropped onto the pad. This protected the wearer from the whiff of the unwashed around them.

In Victorian times “spinner lockets” were also popular whereby the central bail is attached to the silver chain and the silver locket itself is allowed to spin freely.

Silver Cufflinks & Bespoke Shirts

Cufflinks have been used to secure shirts cuffs since the reign of the French King Louis X1V.  This is the period in history when shirt sleeve’s or the cuffs were first fastened by buttons (normally glass) and joined by a chain, hence the name Cufflinks. And as you can see he was a flamboyant dresser and probably the first person who wore Cufflinks.

louis_14th_cufflinks

 

Louis X1V , King of France, 1638 – 1715 or as he was better known Louis The Great

Now obviously Louis’s shirts were handmade for him and therefore were bespoke. Some 40 years later the London bespoke shirt makers Thresher & Glenny were established in London and are still operating today in Middle Temple Lane and still hold Royal Warrants granted in the late 18th century.

Thresher-glenny-shirt-maker-cufflinks

King George 111 granted Thresher & Glenny their Royal Warrant in 1783

Most bespoke shirt makers makers were established in Saville Row, London W1 in the late 1800′s and are still based there today.

No formal bespoke shirt from an established shirt maker would not have French Cuffs or double cuffs as we know them today and thats why you can choose from 000′s of different styles of cufflinks today.
