Carrington Amethyst Cufflinks

Carrington amethyst cufflinks. (J9508)

Purple and Gold


Regal purple amethysts set in finely crafted yellow gold cufflinks created by Carrington & Company circa 1920.

Among the ancient Greeks it was believed that amethysts would protect a wine drinker from the ill effects of over imbibing.  Thus, these elegant cufflinks are ideal for an occasional oenophile as well as a more committed follower of Bacchus.

The gold backs are closed which protects the amethysts and provides a sturdy base for the brackets and cross bars which secure these cufflinks on the cuff.  The backs are polished to a bright finish - please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera.
