Carrington Moonstone Dress Set
| The ethereal luminescence of moonstone set in
the cool brilliance of platinum. The cabochon-cut
moonstones glow with a silvery, shimmering light accented with
subtle hints of blue. This full dress set weds the
sophisticated elegance of Art Deco design with a touch of
moonlit romance. Created by Carrington & Company in
platinum and 14kt gold, circa 1925.
Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs and four
vest buttons set with round cabochon moonstones repeating the
elegant design of the cufflinks. The shirt studs are
5/16" in diameter and just under 1 1/4" long. The vest
buttons are just under 9/16" in diameter.
The backs of the cufflinks, shirt studs and vest buttons are finely crafted in 14kt gold. Carrington & Co. was renowned for its careful attention to design and small, hidden details. On the backs of the cufflinks this can be seen in the smooth, polished finish and softly rounded edges. Also note the sturdy cross bars and brackets with beveled ends which secure the cufflinks on the cuff.
The reverse of the cufflinks and vest buttons are signed with the Carrington & Company maker's mark (a squared "C" enclosing "14") and "GOLD&PLAT" for the precious metals. The shirt studs a similarly marked "C14".
