Moss Agate Cufflinks
| Alluring moss agates set in bright yellow gold
bezels. The moss agates swirl with a tangle of green
inclusions reminiscent of seaweed floating in filtered sunlight
just below the surface of the sea. Beautifully elegant
cufflinks crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1920.
The backs of the cufflinks are as finely crafted as the fronts. The gold backs are closed to help protect the moss agates. Note the sturdy cross bars and half loop brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff. The backs are marked "14K" for the purity of the gold.
Moss Agate is a prized, fine-grained variety of quartz with dramatic green inclusions. This striking gem was a favorite among the makers of gentleman's accessories during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
