Carrington Moonstone Dress Set
| 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,
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".
