Moss Agate and Gold Cufflinks

Sansbury & Nellis Moss Agate cufflinks crafted in 14kt yellow gold. (J8964)

Moss Agate II

Beautiful antique cufflinks featuring fine Moss Agates with the appearence of dark green seaweed floating in sunlit water.  The oval Moss Agates are set in 14-karat yellow gold. Created by Sansbury & Nellis, circa 1920.

In the decades around 1900 jewelers and jewelry lovers embraced the mysterious, protean beauty of Moss Agates.  In no small part inspired by the efforts of George Kunz, Tiffany & Company's famous gemologist, there was a growing interest in lesser known, exotically beautiful gemstones.  These Moss Agates are a wonderful example.
