Sapphire and Diamond Cufflinks
Sapphires and Diamonds
| Art Deco cufflinks with deep blue
sapphires and sparkling diamonds set in frosted platinum
centers. Around the edges of the frosted tops are bright
platinum borders with classic Art Deco motifs. Crafted in
platinum and 14kt gold, circa 1925.
The backs of the cufflinks are crafted in 14kt white gold. Note the sturdy cross bars and strap brackets that secure the cufflinks when worn. The backs are stamped "PLAT. TOP" and "14K" for the purity of the precious metals.
Name: Sapphires and Diamonds
These versatile cufflinks reflect the late Victorian belief that diamonds should only be worn after dark. In theory, these cufflinks would be worn with the sapphires facing outward during the day and the diamonds facing outward in the evening. In practice, personal taste and circumstance more likely dictated whether the diamonds or the sapphires were displayed on the outer cuffs.
