Carrington Amethyst Cufflinks

Purple and Gold!


The regal elegance of purple and gold!  Rich purple amethysts set in brightly polished yellow gold.  These cufflinks may be well suited for the occasional tippler or weekend oenophile.  The ancient Greeks believed amethyst would protect the wearer from intoxication.  Created by Carrington and Co. in 14kt gold,  circa 1910.

The backs of these cufflinks are as well crafted as the fronts.  Note the closed gold backs which protect the amethysts and the sturdy cross bars and tapered brackets which secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  Please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera.  Both the polished gold and amethyst domes are highly reflective.

The maker's mark of Carrington & Company (a squared "C"
enclosing "14") is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks.
