best Art Deco taste, while the edges of the diamond settings are
finely mille grained for a final touch of elegance. Created

The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs are finely crafted
in 14kt yellow gold polished to a bright finish. The
Carrington attention to detail can be seen in the sturdy cross
bars and contoured brackets that secure the cufflinks on the
cuff. Carrington & Company had a reputation for

The backs of the cufflinks are stamped with the Carrington maker's mark (a squared "C" enclosing "14"), as well as "14K & PLAT." for the purity of the precious metals.
The cross bars of the cufflinks are also stamped with the retailer's mark "TIFFANY & Co." indicating that the tuxedo set was originally purchased at the venerated jeweler. Carrington & Company was founded in the late 1890s and for the next 50 years created fine dress and tuxedo sets for Tiffany & Co. and many other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.
