Carrington Classic

An elegant dress set with pearl and mother-and-pearl centers surrounded by classic reeded and tied borders.  Ideal for a white tie affair or a black tie affair in need of a little "rule breaking" pizazz.  Created with Carrington & Company's inimitable sense of design and craftsmanship in 14kt white and rose gold,  circa 1925.

This dress set consists of a pair of cufflinks, three shirt studs and four vest buttons.  The shirt studs and vest buttons (one of each pictured above) match the design of the cufflinks with mother-of-pearl and pearl centers framed by classic reed-and-tie borders.

The reverse of the cufflinks, shirt studs and vest buttons are crafted in rose gold polished with a bright finish.  The Carrington attention to detail can be seen in the smooth rounded edges of the backs and the sturdy cross bars and contoured brackets that secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  (Please excuse the shadowy reflections of the camera.)

The backs of the cufflinks and vest buttons are stamped with the maker's mark of Carrington & Co. (a squared "C" enclosing "14").  During the first half of the 20th century Carrington was known for excellence in craftsmanship and fine materials commensurate with the elegance of the firm's cufflink designs.  Carrington dress and tuxedo sets were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
