Elegant Onyx Tuxedo Set

Larter onyx tuxedo set. (J9149)

Onyx Jazz

Black onyx centers surrounded by white gold borders with a jazzy Art Deco design.  The contrast of black and white plays beautifully with the elegant geometry of the eight-sided tops.  This finely crafted tuxedo set was created by Larter & Sons in 14kt gold, circa 1925.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs (one pictured above).  Like the cufflinks,  the shirt studs are crafted in 14kt gold and play with the dramatic contrast between the black onyx and white gold.

The backs of fine jewels should be examined as closely.  The reverse of these cufflinks and shirt studs are well crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Note the maker's attention to finish and detail and the sturdy brackets, rings and cross bars which secure the cufflinks on the cuff.

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

Larter & Sons was founded in 1865 and made fine cufflinks and tuxedo sets during the late Victorian era and early decades of the 20th century.  The firm had sales offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry across the Hudson River in Newark, New Jersey.
