Carnelian and Gold Cufflinks

Carter Carnelians!

Glowing ember red carnelians set in yellow gold.  The brightness of the gold and sultry luminescence of the carnelians create a dance of light and color, a striking example of the Art Deco aesthetic.  Created by Carter & Gough in 14kt gold, circa 1920.

The decades around 1900 were an Age of Invention with regard to cufflink design.  Cufflink makers strove to create cufflinks that were both easy to put on the cuff and would securely remain there once attached.  This striking pair of carnelian cufflinks by Carter & Gough is an example of the "spool" design (identical ends connected with a straight or curved post) which was favored in the 1920s.

Carter, Gough & Company was a maker of fine gold and platinum cufflinks, dress sets, stickpins and other jewels during the early decades of the last century.  The maker's mark of the firm  - a small arrowhead surrounding the letter "C" -  is stamped on the posts of the cufflinks.  To the left of the maker's mark is "14K" for the purity of the gold.
