Platinum and Onyx Cufflinks
Carrington Black and White
| The dark reflections of polished onyx play
elegantly against the white, cool brilliance of finely engraved
platinum. During the first half of the 20th century
Carrington & Co. was known for sophisticated, understated
elegance in the cufflinks it created with impeccable
craftsmanship. This onyx, platinum and 14kt gold set is an
especially fine example from about 1925.
The reverse of these cufflinks is as beautifully crafted as the front. Note the sturdy brackets and strong cross bars which secure the cufflinks on the cuff and the smooth, high polish of the 14kt yellow gold backs. Carrington & Co. always diligently attended to small, even hidden, details when designing and crafting its cufflinks, dress sets and other jewels.
The maker's mark of Carrington & Co. (a squared "C" enclosing "14") is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks along with "GOLD&PLAT." for the purity of the precious metals, gold and platinum.
Carrington & Co. was a maker of fine cufflinks and elegant dress sets during the first half of the 20th century. The firm created gold and platinum jewels for Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
