"Button" Tuxedo Set

Carrington Buttons

An elegant tuxedo set with mother-of-pearl centers designed as traditional buttons surrounded by classic reed-and-tie borders.  The creamy shimmer of the mother-of-pearl plays beautifully against the icy brilliance of the white gold borders.  Created by Carrington & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1930.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs (one shown).  Like the cufflinks,  the studs feature a button motif in mother-of-pearl surrounded by classic reed-and-tie borders.

The backs of the cufflinks are beautifully crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Carrington & Company's attention to fine detail is seen in the polished mirror-like finish of the gold, the sturdy cross bars, and the strong brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff.  (Please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera.)

The maker's mark of Carrington & Company (a squared "C" enclosing "14") is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks.  Carrington was one of the preeminent makers of fine cufflinks and tuxedo sets in the first half of the 20th century.  The firm's gentleman's accessories were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
