Carrington Button Tuxedo Set


Classic Buttons


An elegant tuxedo set with mother-of-pearl centers designed to mimic traditional buttons.  The frosty elegance of the white gold borders and the snow-like shimmer of the mother-of-pearl centers creates a stunning white-on-white effect.  Created by Carrington & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1930.

Complementing the cufflinks are three shirt studs (one shown).  The shirt studs, like the cufflinks,  feature mother-of-pearl centers designed as traditional buttons surrounded by classic reed-and-tie borders.

The backs of the cufflinks are finely crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Carrington & Company's attention to detail is seen in the polished, mirror-like finish of the gold and the gentle curve of the edges.  Note the sturdy cross bars and the strong brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff.

The Carrington  maker's mark (a squared "C" enclosing "14") is stamped on the backs of the cufflinks.  Carrington was one of the preeminent makers of fine tuxedo and dress sets during the first half of the 20th century.  The firm's cuff jewels were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
