Elegant Carrington Cufflinks

Carrington Elegance!


In the early 20th century Carrington & Company was renowned for elegantly designed, impeccably crafted cufflinks.  This pair from the 1920s is decorated with a finely engraved pattern of radiating, wavy lines surrounded by a course of repeated chevrons.  On the cuff these cufflinks glow with golden understated elegance.  Created in 14kt gold,  circa 1920.

The backs of the cufflinks illustrate the care Carrington took in creating cufflinks.  The maker's attention to detail is evident in the sturdy cross bars and brackets that hold the cufflinks on the cuff.  Also, note the ends of the brackets which have been slightly beveled to ease the passage of the cufflinks through a button hole.  The backs are crafted in 14kt yellow gold polished to a mirror-like finish (please excuse the shadowy reflections from my camera).

The maker's mark of Carrington & Company,  a squared "C" enclosing "14", is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks.  The "14" is the precious metal mark indicating the purity of the gold.

In addition to cufflinks, Carrington & Company created elegant dress sets and other fine jewels from 1900 to about 1950.  The firm supplied gold and platinum jewels to Tiffany & Co. and other fine jewelers of the day.

The intricately engraved design of these cufflinks is an example of engine turning, a technique invented in the 16th century for engraving finely detailed, repeated patterns onto gold and other precious metals.  For those who grew up in the 1960s and 70s engine turning can be thought of as Spirograph for fine jewelers.  As a final touch, the maker heightened and protected the finely engraved lines oval with a layer of clear enamel.
