Elegant Art Deco Cufflinks
Garlands and Swags
|Dramatic, celebratory yellow gold centers
festooned with rose garlands and surrounded by white gold
borders of curving geometric and foliate motifs. These
elegant cufflinks date from the festive Jazz Age of the
1920s. Finely crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1925.
The care and craftsmanship with which these cufflinks were created is also apparent when closely examining the backs. The 14kt yellow gold backs are finely finished with crisp edges and smooth surfaces polished to a bright finish. (Please excuse the shadowy reflections of the camera.) Also, note the sturdy "winged" bridges that securely hold the two ends of the cufflinks on the cuff.
These cufflinks were created by Jacob Hookaylo, a master jeweler who emigrated from Russia in the early 1900s and opened a workshop in northern New Jersey. During the 1920s and 1930s the Hookaylo workshop created beautifully engraved cufflinks that are miniature works of art in the Art Deco style. The distinctive "winged" bridge is one of the signatures of Hookaylo's work.
