Carrington Sapphires and Diamonds!

Among the more elegant cufflinks of the early 1900s were the platinum and gold jewels created by Carrington & Company.  This pair features sapphires and diamonds set amid elegantly engraved pinstripes and geometric borders with finely milgrained edges.  The interplay of the sapphires and diamonds with the bright platinum is mesmerizing.  Crafted in platinum and 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

The backs of the cufflinks are beautifully crafted in 14kt gold.  Carrington & Company's attention to fine detail can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and strong brackets that secure the links on the cuff.  Beneath the brackets the backs are stamped "GOLD & PLAT" for the precious metals.

The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Carrington & Company,  a "C" surrounding "14".  Carrington was a maker of fine cufflinks and dress sets from 1900 to about 1950.  Based in New Jersey, the firm created elegant platinum and gold cufflinks for many of the finest jewelers of the day.

Sapphire and Diamond Cufflinks

Sometimes known as "Night and Day" cufflinks,  sapphire and diamond cufflinks are a reflection of the Victorian belief that diamonds should only be worn after dark.  A gentleman would wear these cufflinks with the sapphires facing outward during the day.  In the evening the cufflinks would be reversed to display the diamonds.
