Diamond and Mother-of-Pearl Dress Set

Carrington diamond and mother-of-pearl dress set. (J9240)

Carrington Jazz!

Platinum borders with jazzy geometric motifs,  sparkling diamonds set in bead-edged collets and carved mother-of-pearl with a radiating wave pattern.  This striking dress set captures the exuberance and spirit of the Jazz Age.  Whenever I examine this dress set I picture a festive New Year's party or joyous wedding with a fun sense of pizzazz.  Created by Carrington & Company in platinum and 14kt gold, circa 1925.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs.  Like the cufflinks,  the studs feature small diamonds centering etched mother-of-pearl centers and jazzy platinum borders.

As with all fine jewels,  you should closely examine cufflinks from every direction.  The backs of these cufflinks and shirt studs are beautifully crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  You can see the maker's attention to detail in the sturdy brackets and cross bars that secure these cufflinks on the cuff.  The Carrington firm was known for the elegance of its designs and quality of its craftsmanship.  Please excuse the shadowy reflections in the photo from my camera.

The maker's mark of Carrington & Company (a squared "C" enclosing "14") is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks along with "GOLD & PLAT" for the precious metals.  Carrington & Co. was founded in 1900 and created some of the finest cufflinks and dress sets of the first half of the 20th century.
