Dendritic Agate Cufflinks

Natural History

Wonderful dendritic agates set in yellow gold.  The striking agates "bloom" with dark inclusions that bring to mind trees in an ancient landscape or exotic plants from some primordial world.  Dendritic agate is a fine grained variety of quartz prized for its tree-like inclusions.  These finely crafted cufflinks were created by George O. Street & Sons in 14kt gold,  circa 1910.

The backs of the cufflinks are finely crafted in 14kt gold.  Note the closed gold backs which help protect the agates and the sturdy strap brackets and oval links that assure the cufflinks remain safely on the cuff.

The maker's mark for George O. Street & Sons  - an "S" in an oval -  is stamped at the base of the brackets.  George O. Street created fine cufflinks and other jewels from 1837 through the first half of the 20th century.  The firm excelled at fine gold work and had a reputation for exceptional design and materials.

Dendritic agate is a prized, fine grained variety of quartz with dramatic dark inclusions.  This striking gem was favored by makers of fine cufflinks and other gentleman's accessories during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  The branching, tree-like inclusions give this mesmerizing gem its name.
