Art Deco Sapphire Cufflinks
| Bright blue sapphires sparkle atop mesmerizing
cascades of scalloped lines. The finely engraved centers
are surrounded by stylized borders of alternating scroll and
dragonfly motifs. These elegant Art Deco cufflinks were
created in 14kt gold, circa 1925.
The backs of the cufflinks are crafted in yellow gold. As with the fronts, the backs are finely made. Note the sturdy brackets, rings and cross bars that secure these cufflinks on the cuff while also helping to protect the sapphires. The yellow gold has a striking mirror-like finish - please excuse the shadowy reflections of the camera.
The maker's mark of William Huger (an "H" squeezed in the middle) is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks. William Huger was a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels during the early 20th century. The Huger workshop is especially well known for the striking, richly detailed cufflinks it created during the Art Deco era. With the maker's mark "14" is stamped to indicate the purity of the gold.
