The backs of the cufflinks were crafted with the same care and craftsmanship found on the fronts.  The 14kt gold backs protect the mother-of-pearl and diamond centers while providing a sturdy base for the platinum laurel wreathes.  Note the design of the sturdy cross links and brackets,  an early configuration favored by Carrington & Co.  The yellow gold is brightly finished (please excuse the shadowy reflections of the camera).

The Gilded Age

The Gilded Age, also known as the Age of Opulence and La Belle Époque ("The Beautiful Age"), was a period of relative peace and prosperity in Europe and North America lasting from the mid 1870s to the beginning of the First World War.  Jewelry during this period reflected the opulence, prosperity and, at times, excesses of the era.  Diamonds and pearls set in finely sculpted platinum were especially favored.  The sumptuous, frosty whiteness of the jewels created a sophisticated, sparkling sense of elegance.

These Carrington cufflinks reflect the firm's reputation for elegance and irreproachable craftsmanship.
