Victorian jewelers had a wonderful ability to work with gold.  They were masters of exploiting the sculptural qualities, elegant reflections and pleasing solidity of the precious metal and, as a result, created cufflinks of exceptional beauty.

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 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.

Name:  Diamonds and Scrolls

Cost:  $925
