Carrington Pearl Dress Set!

During the first half of the last century,  Carrington & Company was one of the premier makers of elegant cufflinks and fine dress sets.  This Art Deco dress set features cufflinks with pearl and mother-of-pearl centers surrounded by platinum borders embellished with geometric Art Deco motifs.  Crafted in platinum and 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs.  The mother-of-pearl and pearl tops measure 5/16" in diameter and the studs are 1 1/8" in length.  They are crafted in platinum and 14kt gold.  The studs have spring loaded backs - a design first patented in 1898.

Like the cufflinks, the studs have pearl and mother-of-pearl centers surrounded by bold Art Deco borders crafted in platinum.  To enhance the elegance and sparkle of the shirt studs the mother-of-pearl centers are finely etched with an intricate spider web-like design.

The backs of the cufflinks and studs are crafted in 14kt gold polished to a mirror-like finish (please excuse the reflections from our camera).  The maker's mark for Carrington & Company,  a "C" surrounding "14",  is visible on the reverse of the cufflinks,  as well as the precious metal marks for gold and platinum,  "GOLD & PLAT".  The reverse and stems of the shirt studs are marked similarly.
