Dragon and Turquoise Cufflinks

Late Victorian Chinese dragon and turquoise cufflinks. (J9347)

Guardian Dragons


Victorian jewelers in the late 19th century found inspiration in the arts and artistry of East Asia.  The cultures and designs of China and Japan were particularly strong influences.  These finely sculpted cufflinks feature fierce dragons encircling sky blue turquoise.  An elegant example of West meeting East crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1890.

The solid gold backs of the cufflinks are as well finished as the fronts.  Note the sturdy cross bars and ribbed brackets which secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  Beneath the brackets "14K" is stamped for the purity of the gold.
