Developed in the 1890s, the .500 Nitro Express (NE) rifle cartridge was developed for intrepid hunters who dared venture off to the wilds of Africa and India in pursuit of large and dangerous game. London gunmaker, John Rigby & Co.’s new cufflinks adorned with the inner rifling of a .500 NE barrel offer a steadfast reminder of strength and courage.

Meticulously hand-crafted, these enamelled sterling silver cufflinks, part of Rigby’s Objet d’art collection are inspired by the company’s long history of gunmaking and feature a seven-grooved rifling spiral design, as influenced by the iconic .500 Rigby Rising Bite double rifle. With enamelled oval swivels baring the Rigby name, they are perfect for collectors or those searching for the ultimate gift.

As with all items in Rigby’s Objet d’art collection, each are stamped with the Rigby maker’s mark, alongside the London hallmark. Each set of cufflinks come presented in a beautiful Rigby blue box, bearing the iconic Rigby ‘double R’ logo.

Rigby .500 Nitro Express Cufflinks: £1,080, plus P&P.
