These fordite cuff links are set in stainless steel. These have great color but are not over the top. The patterns are also very nice. This fordite is from the Parkway Toledo Ohio plant. The settings are about 22 mm across. 

Fordite is recycled automotive paint sourced from automotive factories as well as manufacturers who paint parts for new vehicles. It forms in thin layers as car parts are painted on the racks that hold them in place. After hundreds of trips through the booth where the paint is sprayed and then baked the excess buildup is scraped off the racks. We buy this waste paint in rough chunks and recycle it into beautiful jewelry. It can take hundreds of layers of paint to make a one inch thick piece of fordite. The original fordite came from Detroit and since then it’s also synonymously known as Detroit Agate. There is very little fordite that is truly vintage. Most that’s available is modern i.e. current or within the past 15 years. We prefer modern fordite as it’s water rather than lead based paint. There are many different fordite types and some are more valuable than others. You’ll find in our fordite listings we refer to the plant location that the fordite originated from rather than listing specific auto manufacturers or vehicles.You can easily google the plant location and get a list of vehicles painted there. We love to talk fordite so if you are looking for a specific type or color odds are we have it so please send us a message. All of our fordite is authentic.

Descriptions: If you'd like a fordite description included with your order please leave a note when you buy and we'll include one specific to the piece you purchase.

 The main picture of this fordite cabochon is enlarged to show detail. See the other pictures for scale and below for detailed measurements. This cabochon is in an elongated oval that's fully domed. All sides including the back are polished. This is made from semi truck fordite and occurred as a result of painting parts for freight liners. See the measurements below.

 

Packaging: We package jewelry in jewelry boxes and cabochons in containers so that they will arrive safely.
