Christchurch Map Cufflinks
Our Christchurch map cufflinks are NZ made jewellery, with beautiful symbolism. That’s because each 20mm diameter settings features a miniature map of the Garden City within it, carefully placed under a glass dome. These will stand out at your next meeting and make a great talking point with colleagues or a on a dinner date.
Devastated physically, but not in spirit, Christchurch is slowly beginning to rise from the ashes. The 2010-11 earthquakes which destroyed many homes and historical buildings have shown the world the strength and kindness Canterburians have for each other and their hometown. Wearing a miniature map of Christchurch is a wonderful way of showing our solidarity with them.
Christchurch is located on the eastern side of the South Island of New Zealand. With amazing rugged hills, a varied coastline and the Southern Alps in the distance, Christchurch is the largest of our southern cities. Prior to the earthquakes, Christchurch had many old historical buildings which dated back to the 1800’s. As it was a planned English settlement, lots of the buildings were built in a Neo-Gothic architectural style using locally sourced stone.
This Canterbury based city proudly claims that it is the gateway to the South Island. Within a two-hour drive, you are able to go skiing, visits seals and whales, go bungy jumping or simply relax at one of their local wineries for a taste testing. In the central city, Cathedral Square is home to the towering Christchurch Cathedral, which was severely damaged in the earthquakes. Rebuilding of the cathedral and many other buildings remains an ongoing process.
If you have visited or lived in Christchurch, or have a friend who has, a map pendant really is a lovely way of showing your support for this amazing city. Steampunk in looks and versatile to wear for casual and many formal occasions, we are certain you will love your cufflinks! Presented in a leatherette box for storing and gifting.
