Elegant Onyx Dress Set

Jazz Onyx!

Richly detailed white gold borders frame elegant black onyx centers.  With the jazzy interplay of black and white this dress set beautifully captures the exuberance and elegance of the Art Deco era.  It brings to mind a festive New Year's party with streamers and confetti falling at midnight.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs (one pictured above).  Like the cufflinks,  the shirt studs are crafted in 14kt gold and play with the dramatic contrast between the black onyx and white gold.

The backs of fine cufflinks should be examined as closely as the fronts.  The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs in this dress set are well crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Note the maker's attention to finish and detail and the sturdy brackets and strong cross bars that secure the links on the cuff.

The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Larter & Sons (the profile of a shirt stud) surrounded by "14K" for the purity of the gold.  The maker's mark is a spring-loaded shirt stud patented by Halsey Larter in 1898 and popularized by Larter & Sons in the early 20th century.

Larter & Sons was founded in 1865 and made distinctive cufflinks and dress sets during the late Victorian era and early decades of the last century.  The firm had offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry across the Hudson River in New Jersey.
