Art Moderne Tuxedo Set

Carrington mother-of-pearl dress set. (J9447)

Carrington Mother of Pearl

Creamy white mother of pearl with beveled edges and gentle concave centers framed by bright white gold bezels.  This striking tuxedo set beautifully evokes the sculptural elegance of the late Art Deco style known as "Art Moderne".  Created by Carrington & Co. in 14kt gold,  circa 1930.

The tuxedo set consists of a pair of cufflinks and three matching shirt studs.  The shirt studs,  like the cufflinks,  feature concave carved mother of pearl centers set in white gold bezels.

The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs are finely crafted in 14kt gold polished to a bright finish.  The Carrington attention to detail can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and shaped brackets that secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  Carrington & Company was known for excellent craftsmanship and the use of fine materials commensurate with the elegance of the firm's designs.  (Please excuse the shadowy reflections  from the camera in the photo.)

The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs are stamped with the maker's mark of Carrington & Co. (a squared "C" enclosing "14").  During the first half of the 20th century this mark was associated with the finely crafted jewels and accessories created by the firm.  Carrington dress sets and cufflinks were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
