The backs of the cufflinks are as well crafinted as the fronts  yellow gold polished to a mirror-like finish.  Sturdy cross bars and strong brackets with beveled ends to ease the passage of the cufflinks through a button hole secure these cufflinks on the cuff.

The meticulous care with which these cufflinks were crafted and the design of the linkage indicates that these cufflinks were created by Carrington & Company. Carrington was a maker of fine cufflinks and other gentleman's accessories during the first half of the 20th century. The firm's cufflinks and dress sets were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage trade jewelers of the day.
