Moonlight in Platinum


The ethereal, shimmering light of moonstone set in the cool brilliance of platinum.  The cabochon-cut moonstones glow with a silvery, white luminance accented with subtle hints of blue.  This full dress set weds the sophisticated elegance of the Art Deco era with a touch of moonlit romance.  Created by Carrington & Company in platinum and 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

Carrington & Company was one of the preeminent makers of fine dress sets during the first half of the 20th century.  The firm was renowned for elegant design,  exquisite materials and impeccable craftsmanship.  Carrington's gold and platinum accessories were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage trade jewelers of the day.

Careful attention to small details and hidden parts was a hallmark of Carrington & Company's jewelry production.  This can be seen on the reverse of the cufflinks.  The backs are crafted in 14kt yellow gold and polished to a bright finish.  Note the sturdy cross bars and brackets with beveled ends that secure these cufflinks on the cuff.  The shirt studs and vest buttons were crafted with similar care.

Carrington & Company maker's mark.

The reverse of the cufflinks and vest buttons are signed with the maker's mark of Carrington & Company,  a blocky "C" enclosing "14" for the purity of the gold.  The backs of the pieces are also marked "GOLD&PLAT" for the precious metals used.
