The backs of the cufflinks are well crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Note the sturdy cross bars and brackets that secure these links on the cuff.  The gold backs are polished to a bright finish.  Please excuse the dark areas in the photograph - they are reflections from the camera.

Sapphire and Diamond Cufflinks

Sometimes known as "Night and Day" cufflinks,  Sapphire and Diamond cufflinks are a reflection of the Victorian belief that diamonds should only be worn after dark.  A gentleman (or lady) could wear these cufflinks during the day with the sapphires facing outward.  In the evening the cufflinks would be reversed to display the diamonds.

By the Jazz Age of the 1920s,  it is doubtful that the fashion strictures of the Victorian era were still followed.  Yet, the jazzy play of diamonds and sapphires added to the elegant versatility of these cufflinks.  It is undeniable that both gemstones sparkle beautifully when set in finely engraved platinum.
