Dragon and Turquoise Cufflinks

Guardian Serpents!


Menacing dragons or serpents vigilantly guard rich blue turquoise.  Beautifully sculpted in gold,  the richly detailed dragons appear fiercely animated.  They are ideally suited to be "personal gargoyles" watching vigilantly from a wearer's cuff.

The jewelers of the late 1800s found inspiration in the cultures of ancient civilizations and distant lands.  Among the possible sources that may have inspired these striking cufflinks are the arts and architecture of Asia, Norse mythology and the cosmology of the ancient Mayans.  Or, they may have been purely the product of the artist jeweler's imagination.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1890.

The solid gold backs of the cufflinks are as well crafted as the fronts.  Please note the sturdy cross bars and ribbed brackets which secure these cufflinks on the cuff.  Beneath the brackets "14K" is stamped for the purity of the gold.

These cufflinks are amazingly photogenic both in front of the camera and in person.  As a result,  I couldn't resist taking one more photograph!  Just to avoid any confusion ... the set consists of two cufflinks, not three.     - Arthur
