Classic 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 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 1935.

Complementing the cufflinks are three matching shirt studs (one shown).  The shirt studs, like the cufflinks,  feature mother-of-pearl centers designed as buttons 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 details is seen in the polished, mirror-like finish of the gold and the gently rounded edges.  Note the sturdy cross bars and the strong brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff.

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 tuxedo sets and cufflinks during the first half of the 20th century.  The firm's cuff jewels were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
