Antique Heliotrope Cufflinks

Bloodstone and Gold

Heliotrope, more commonly known as "bloodstone," is a beautiful variety of quartz with smouldering red spots embedded in dark green jasper.  Fine examples,  like the heliotropes set in these cufflinks, have the appearance of fiery embers glowing in a dark bed of ashes.  These elegant cufflinks were created in 14kt gold around 1910.

The cufflinks are well crafted with sturdy gold frames supporting and protecting the heliotropes.  Although these cufflinks are not signed, the design of the cross bars and brackets suggests that Carter, Gough & Co. may have been the maker.  Carter, Gough created fine cufflinks and other jewels during the Victorian era into the early decades of the 20th century.  The firm was based in Newark, New Jersey.
