Art Moderne Tuxedo Set

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

Carrington Art Moderne



Luminous white mother of pearl set in unobtrusive white gold bezels.  The mother-of-pearl centers have sculpted edges and gently concave middles.  This striking tuxedo set reflects the simple, understated elegance of the early minimalist style known as "Art Moderne".  Created by Carrington & Co. in 14kt gold,  circa 1930.

This tuxedo set consists of a pair of cufflinks and three 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.  Carrington & Company's attention to detail can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and shaped brackets that secure the cufflinks.  Carrington was known for excellence in craftsmanship and the use of fine materials commensurate with the elegance of the firm's designs.  (Please excuse the shadowy reflections of my camera in the photograph.)

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 Carrington dress sets and cufflinks were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
