A Valentine’s Gift Worth Receiving

There is a fair amount of tat in the world, much of it on sale in the multitude of Ferrari Stores that have opened up from Maranello to Dubai and beyond. But every so often a little something bucks the trend.

Witness the Bluebird cufflinks produced by GTO London, for example…

Made to replicate the streamlined disks fitted to each corner of Sir Malcolm Campbell’s Land Speed Record cars of the 1930s, these are really rather special. It’s the fact that they lack any real ‘novelty’ value and are just pretty things in themselves that really wins you over. That they’re a fair representation of such an iconic line of cars from 1931 to 1937 is an added bonus:

Each cufflink is handmade in hallmarked sterling silver, finished with a black rhodium plated ‘tyre’ and deep blue iolite stone wheel centres. They have been developed with the Campbell family and carry their official approval.
