Art Deco Platinum Cufflinks

Carrington platinum and blue enamel cufflinks. (J9362)

Carrington Blues!

The radiant elegance of finely engraved platinum accented with blue enamel borders.  Carrington & Company, the maker of these cufflinks, strove for an excellence in design and craftsmanship that is as captivating today as it was 100 years ago.  Crafted in platinum and 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

The backs of the cufflinks are beautifully crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Carrington & Company paid as much attention to the design of the backs of its cufflinks as it did to the fronts.  Note the slightly bevelled ends and streamlined contours of the brackets which helps ease the passage of the cufflinks through a button hole.  Once on, the sturdy cross bars and strong brackets help assure that these cufflinks remain safely on the cuff.

The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Carrington & Company,  a "C" surrounding a "14" for the purity of the gold.  Above the brackets "GOLD & PLAT" is stamped to indicate the precious metals.

Carrington & Co. was one of the premier makers of fine cufflinks, dress sets and other gentlemen's accessories during the first half of the 20th century.  The firm's cuff creations were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other fine carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
