Jazz Age Diamond Cufflinks
| Elegant cufflinks from the Jazz Age of the
1920s. Intricate starburst centers reminiscent of the rose
windows found illuminating Gothic cathedrals are surrounded by
white gold borders accented with stylized Art Deco motifs.
A small diamond is set on one side of each cufflink to add a
final touch of sparkle. Created by Jacob Hookaylo in 14kt
gold, circa 1925.
The care and craftsmanship with which these cufflinks were created can be seen on the reverse. Note the wing-form bridges and sturdy brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff. The backs are polished to a mirror-like finish (please excuse the reflections from our camera). On the bridges "14K" is stamped for the purity of the gold.
The jazzy design of these cufflinks and unique winged bridges indicate that they were created by Jacob Hookaylo, a Russian emigré who created distinctively beautiful cufflinks during the 1920s and 1930s. The Hookaylo workshop was based in Newark, New Jersey and created beautiful cufflinks that are miniature icons of Art Deco style and elegance.
