Default Jewel like RS1800

Ford RS1800 Escort MK2

British jeweller Russel Lord has created over a 25 year period a stunning miniature replica of a Ford MK2 Escort which has been his life long passion, owning many cars himself.

Measuring just over 6 inches long and weighing just under a kilogram, it is built of gold, silver, and platinum and studded with diamonds, sapphires and rubies. With over 1,300 hours of his life he has invested in it.

The body shell and floor pans are made of solid silver, with the rear spoiler is gold, as are the bonnet hinges. The radiator grille is made of white gold and the headlights are 65-point diamonds. The lower spotlights comprise another pair of 75-point diamonds, while the upper ones are well over a carat each. The front and rear indicators are orange sapphires, while the rear brake lights are made of rubies, with a diamond reversing light. The oval rear Ford badge is a blue sapphire.

Amazing attention to detail and dedication has gone into this creation, which Russell is now offering for sale by auction, with all proceeds going to children’s charity.
