Art Deco Diamond Cufflinks

Art Deco Elegance II

Art Deco cufflinks that sparkle with the sophisticated elegance and geometric dazzle of a Busby Berkeley musical.  Quatrefoil centers engraved with a shimmering wave pattern are surrounded by tiered borders that rise up like steps.  On one side a small diamond is set, while at the cusps fluted "epaulets" flow downward like cascading waterfalls.  Milgrained edges reminiscent of miniature footlights add a final touch of sparkle.  An iconic example of Art Deco design.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1930.

The backs of these cufflinks are as well designed as the fronts.   Note the thickness of the edges and the sturdy brackets and cross bars that secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  These cufflinks were created to survive the next 100 years as beautifully as they survived the last.

The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Taylor & Company - a draughtman's "T" surrounded by "14" and "K" for the purity of the gold.  Taylor & Company was founded by John Taylor in the late 1800s and created finely crafted, beautifully designed cufflinks and other jewels into the 1930s.
