Cockney rhyming slang designs worth a few horse and hounds.
Cufflinks with a cheeky Cockney rhyming slang theme by jewellery brand Babette Wasserman have been picked up by London’s Harvey Nichols.
The silver cufflink sets have been designed exclusively for Harvey Nicks and come in two designs, Elephant and Castle, which stands for the word parcel, and Horse and Hound for pound.
Wasserman said: “Upon being asked by Harvey Nichols London to create two exclusive designs for them to set side by side with my current Cockney Rhyming Slang cufflink range, I wanted to bring together the fact that Harvey Nichols started in London, I wanted to represent some kind of animal as us Brits love our animals and bring all these elements together within a very British theme.
“After scouring for hours through hundreds of old cockney rhyming terms I came across the infamous Elephant and Castle, meaning parcel. A great gift idea with the parcel at the back and a wonderful East End of London borough reference, where cockney rhyming slang originated from,” she said.
Wasserman says she chose the horse and hound cufflinks for their ‘quintessentially British’ hunting theme and the cufflinks are set off with a miniature pound coin at the back. The cufflinks are hand-made and plated with Rhodium.
