Tree Agate Cufflinks

Dendritic Agates

Wonderfully evocative dendritic (tree) agates set in yellow gold.  The agates bloom with dark inclusions that soar upward like ancient trees or exotic plants in a primeval landscape.  Elegant cufflinks were created by George O. Street & Sons in 14kt gold,  circa 1910.

The backs of the cufflinks are as finely crafted as the fronts.  The closed gold backs help protect the agates while the sturdy cross links and strap brackets help assure that cufflinks remain securely on the cuff.

The maker's mark for George O. Street & Sons  - an "S" in an oval -  is stamped on the base of the brackets. This firm of jewelry makers created fine cufflinks and other jewels from 1837 to about 1950.  The firm was known for its masterful gold work and uncompromising commitment to fine materials and exceptional design.
