These antique cufflinks have a distinguished military history. They depict the crest and cap badge of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers and would likely have belonged to a Fusilier having served in the First World War, since they were dated 1919.

The Fusiliers trace their history back 350 years to 1674 as one of the three ‘English’ units of the Anglo-Scots Brigade which accompanied William III in the 1688 Glorious Revolution.

The crest on the cufflinks depicts St. George killing a dragon with the motto “QUO FATA VACANT” meaning ‘whither the fates call’; this was the regiment’s ancient badge.

On the other cufflink face, is an image of the regiment’s hackle or cap badge, with the plumes of red and white feathers.

The cufflinks are fully hallmarked for 9ct gold and have the assay mark for Birmingham 1919.

They are a lovely pair of cufflinks for someone who has an interest in history.

ABOUT OUR JEWELLERY

This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000.

Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone.

Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
