Art Deco Onyx Cufflinks

Larter onyx cufflinks. (J9385)

Dramatic Elegance

The dramatic elegance of black onyx set in an Art Deco white gold border.  The contrast of black and white is matched by the captivating geometry of the design.  Created by Larter & Sons in 14kt gold, circa 1925.

The backs of the cufflinks are crafted in 14kt yellow fitted within the white gold borders.  The gold is polished to a bright finish (please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera).  The maker's attention to small details can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and strap brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff.

The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Larter & Sons (a stylized shirt stud) surrounded by "14" and "K".  The mark is the profile of a spring-loaded shirt stud patented by Halsey Larter in 1898 and popularized by the firm during the early 20th century.

Larter & Sons was founded at the close of the Civil War and made distinctive cufflinks and dress sets during the late Victorian era and for much of the 20th century.  The firm had offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry across the Hudson River in Newark, New Jersey.
