Elegant Art Nouveau Cufflinks
Flowing, dramatic whiplash curves were a hallmark of Art Nouveau period. These elegant gold cufflinks beautifully capture the spirit of Art Nouveau design. A small diamond glistens at the center of the cufflinks like a dew drop between sinuous vines. Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1900.
The cufflinks are well constructed. The solid tops are attached to bean-shape backs with sturdy "crow feet" bridges. Note the goldsmith's attention to the finish and small details.
These cufflinks were made by Krementz & Company. Krementz & Company was founded in 1866 and known for elegant jewels during the Victorian and later periods. Krementz also made distinctive jewels for men including cufflinks and dress sets. In fact, the Krementz hallmark is a stylized collar button as seen above just to the right of the "14K" precious metal mark.
