Accented with 18ct gold, the cufflinks will be available for £995 and all proceeds go to the Prince's youth charity - The Prince's Trust.

Just when you thought the British Royal Family couldn't get any weirder, the Prince of Wales has had the aluminum pistons from his Aston Martin DB6 Volante melted down and turned into cufflinks. While this sounds crazy, the six donor pistons became available when the Prince converted the car to run on biofuel.

A total of 200 cufflinks were made by TMB ArtMetal, and they were designed to resemble the DB6 and the car's iconic wheel ‘spinners'. Accented with 18ct gold, the cufflinks will be available for £995 and all proceeds go to the Prince's youth charity - The Prince's Trust.

According to Martina Milburn, chief executive of The Prince's Trust, "With these proceeds, we will be able to help more young people into jobs across the UK. Young people have been hit hardest in the recession, so it's now more important than ever to give them the skills and confidence they need to find work."
