We are also able to engrave a short message or text on the reverse of each cufflink, this is limited to approximately 20 characters per cufflink for the best result in the engraving space available, the longer the message the small it will become.
A digital black/white proof will be emailed to you prior to engraving (customised designs only), just to ensure you are happy with the design.

History: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia
The Coldstream Guards is the oldest, continuously serving, regular regiment in the British Army As part of the Household Division, one of its principal roles is the protection of the monarchy and, due to this, it often plays a central role in state ceremonial occasions. The Regiment has consistently provided formations on deployments around the world and fought in the majority of the major conflicts that the British Army has been engaged in.
The Regiment has been in continuous service and has never been amalgamated. It was formed in 1650 as 'Monck's Regiment of Foot' and was then renamed 'The Lord General's Regiment of Foot Guards' after the restoration in 1660. With Monck's death in 1670 it was again renamed 'The Coldstream Regiment of Foot Guards' after the location from which it marched to help restore the monarchy in 1660. Its name was again changed to 'The Coldstream Guards' in 1855 and this is still its present title.
Today, the Regiment consists of: Regimental Headquarters, a single battalion (the 1st Battalion), an independent incremental company (Number 7 Company, maintaining the customs and traditions, as well as carrying the Colours of 2nd Battalion), a Regimental Band, and elements at training establishments as well as officers and other ranks on extra regimental employment. Queen Elizabeth II is the Colonel-in-Chief, and Lieutenant General Sir James Bucknall KCB CBE is the Colonel of the Regiment.
