Carrington Moonstone

The ethereal light of moonstones set in the cool brilliance of platinum.  The shimmering glow is accented with subtle hints of blue.  This Art Deco dress set (cufflinks, shirt studs and vest buttons) is the perfect marriage of moonlit romance with sophisticated elegance.  Created by Carrington & Company in 14kt gold and platinum, circa 1925.
