Elegant Amethyst Cufflinks

Carter Amethysts



Rich purple amethysts set in finely crafted yellow gold bezels.  These elegant cufflinks were created at a time when 14kt yellow gold often had a wonderful, slightly reddish coloration known as "antique gold".  In these cufflinks the antique blush of the gold plays beautifully against the hues of the amethysts.  Created by Carter, Howe & Co. in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

These finely crafted cufflinks are secured on the cuff with strong curved bridges and sturdy bean backs.  The bean backs are hand-engraved in a flowing Victorian script with the initials of the original owner, "F.C.S."

The bridges are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold followed by the maker's mark of Carter, Howe & Co., an arrowhead enclosing a small "C".  Carter, Howe (later Carter, Gough)  was a maker of fine cufflinks, stickpins and other well-designed gentleman's accessories.  The firm was founded in 1841 and created beautiful jewels for nearly 100 years, finally closing its doors during the economic turmoil of the early 1930s.
