Sapphire and Diamond Cufflinks
Sapphires and Diamonds II
| Art Deco cufflinks with sparkling diamonds set
on one side and dark blue sapphires on the other in the classic
"night and day" style of the early 20th century. The
gemstones are set in frosty platinum centers surrounded by
elegant Art Deco borders. Crafted in platinum and 14kt
gold, circa 1925.
The backs of the cufflinks are crafted in 14kt white gold. Note the sturdy cross bars and strap brackets that secure the cufflinks when worn. The backs are stamped "PLAT. TOP" and "14K" for the purity of the precious metals.
Name: Sapphires and Diamonds II
Night and Day Cufflinks
Sapphire and diamond cufflinks, sometimes known as "night and day" cufflinks, are a reflection of the late Victorian belief that diamonds should only be worn after dark. A gentleman would wear these cufflinks with the sapphires facing outward during the day and in the evening the cufflinks would be reversed to display the diamonds.
