Victorian Diamond Cufflinks
| An intertwining tangle of finely detailed
scrolls is centered with a polished gold boss set with a small
diamond. These beautifully crafted Victorian cufflinks
reflect and dance with light in an elegant, golden
shimmer. Some cufflinks are just made for
candlelight! Created in 14kt gold, circa 1890.
Victorian jewelers were masters at working with gold to create wonderfully intricate designs. They were adept at exploiting the sculptural qualities of the precious metal to create jewels that elegantly dance and sparkle in reflected light while maintaining a pleasing solidity and weightiness. These cufflinks are an exceptional example.
These cufflinks are beautifully constructed with sturdy curved bridges connecting stationary "bean backs" to the oval fronts. They were created by H.A. Kirby a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels from about 1885 to 1920. His self-named jewelry firm was located in Providence, Rhode Island.
The maker's mark of H.A. Kirby & Co (a small Maltese cross in a circular recess) along with "14K" for the purity of the gold are stamped on the insides of the bean backs.
