Red Carnelian!

An elegant dress set with smoldering, sultry red carnelians.  The ruddy shades of the carnelians contrasts perfectly the yellow gold of the settings.  Beautifully crafted by Day, Clark in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs similarly set with carnelian cabochons.  Carnelian is a bewitching variety of chalcedony known for its ruddy, red hues.  The finer examples seem to glow with an inner fire.  Carnelian was a favorite gemstone for gentlemen's jewelry during the late 19th and early 20th century.

The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs are well crafted with sturdy strap brackets and strong cross bars securing the ends of the cufflinks.  The shirt studs are anchored with sturdy circular bases.

The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs are stamped with "14" for the purity of the gold.  Several of the shirt studs are also signed with the maker's mark of Day, Clark & Company  - the profile of small barbell-style cufflink.  Day, Clark was a maker of elegant cufflinks, dress sets and other jewels active from 1877 until about 1940.
