Complementing the cufflinks are three matching shirt studs (one shown above).  Like the cufflinks,  the studs feature mother-of-pearl centers set with small pearls framed by bright white gold borders.

The backs of the cufflinks are beautifully crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Carrington & Company's attention to fine detail can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and the strong brackets that secure the cufflinks on the cuff.  The shirt studs are similarly well constructed.  (Please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera.)

The maker's mark of Carrington & Company (a squared "C" enclosing "14") is stamped on the reverse of the cufflinks.  Carrington was one of the preeminent makers of fine cufflinks and tuxedo sets during the first half of the 20th century.  Known for its gentleman's accessories, Carrington cufflinks and tuxedo sets were retailed by Tiffany & Company and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
