St Piran flag cufflinks – pewter cufflinks with black and white enamel of the Cornish St Piran flag. Silver-plated T-bars.
St Piran is the patron saint of tin miners and also the national saint of Cornwall. St Piran rediscovered tin-smelting when his black hearthstone, which was evidently a slab of tin-bearing ore, had the tin smelt out of it and rise to the top to form a white cross. From this came the St Piran flag which is the white cross on the black background that you can see all over Cornwall today. St Piran’s day is celebrated annually on the 5th March.
