Gold and Platinum Cufflinks
|Elegant platinum borders frame gold centers with
an intricate barleycorn design. The barleycorn design is a
traditional engraving pattern often used to decorate the dials
and backs of fine pocket and wrist watches. Created by
Carrington & Company in 14kt gold and platinum circa 1920.
The backs of these cufflinks are as finely crafted as the fronts. Note Carrington & Company's attention to small details in the evenness of the surfaces and edges and the sturdy cross bars and beveled brackets which secure the links on the cuff.
The backs are stamped with the Carrington maker's mark (an angular "C" enclosing "14") and the firm's precious metal mark "GOLD&PLAT.". In the late 1890s Charles Lewis Carrington founded the firm which created some of the finest cufflinks and tuxedo sets of the early 20th century. The firm's gold and platinum accessories were offered at Tiffany & Co. and other fine jewelers of the day.
