Platinum and Onyx Cufflinks

Carrington Black and White



The dark reflections of polished onyx play elegantly against the white, cool brilliance of finely engraved platinum.  During the first half of the 20th century Carrington & Co. was known for sophisticated, understated elegance in the cufflinks it created with impeccable craftsmanship.  This onyx, platinum and 14kt gold set is an especially fine example from about 1925.

The reverse of these cufflinks is as beautifully crafted as the front.  Note the sturdy brackets and strong cross bars which secure the cufflinks on the cuff and the smooth, high polish of the 14kt yellow gold backs.  Carrington & Co. always diligently attended to small, even hidden, details when designing and crafting its cufflinks, dress sets and other jewels.

The maker's mark of Carrington & Co. (a squared "C" enclosing "14") is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks along with "GOLD&PLAT." for the purity of the precious metals, gold and platinum.
