Birmingham based Deakin & Francis open the doors to their workshop in a new series of film clips. The suppliers, who will be celebrating 230 years in the same building next year, offer a glimpse into their world with a set of videos- the first of which covers how their cufflinks are manufactured.

Deakin & Francis are a 7th generation company and the world’s oldest family jewellers. They seek to differentiate themselves through quality with each product going through at least eight months designing by James Deakin. Pieces are created using the strike and cut method, rather than being cast, and everything is hand enamelled before being polished in six different stages. All Deakin & Francis display and point of sale is complementary.
