Sapphires and Diamonds

Elegant platinum cufflinks with finely engraved pinstripe centers surround by bold geometric borders.  One side is set with a sparkling diamond and the other with a dark blue sapphire in the classic "night and day" style of the early 1900s.  Created by Carrington & Company in platinum and 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

The backs of the cufflinks are beautifully crafted in 14kt gold.  Carrington & Company's attention to detail can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and strong brackets that secure the links on the cuff.  Beneath the brackets the backs are stamped "GOLD & PLAT" for the precious metals.

Night and Day Cufflinks

Sapphire and diamond cufflinks, sometimes known as "night and day" cufflinks,   are a reflection of the late Victorian belief that diamonds should only be worn after dark.  A gentleman would wear these cufflinks with the sapphires facing outward during the day and in the evening the cufflinks would be reversed to display the diamonds.
