Carter, Gough Bloodstone Cufflinks

Carter, Gough Art Deco bloodstone cufflinks. (CL9613)

Heliotrope Moderne

Striking heliotropes set in bright, white gold bezels.  These cufflinks are in the elegant Art Moderne style of the late Art Deco period.  Created by Carter, Gough & Co. in 14kt gold circa 1930.

Heliotrope, more commonly known as "bloodstone," is a dark green variety of quartz with smoldering red spots that glow like
fiery embers resting in a bed of dark ashes.  These elegant cufflinks are set with beautiful specimens of the alluring gemstone.

The yellow gold backs of the cufflinks are as finely crafted as the fronts.  The closed design of the backs helps protect the bloodstones, while the sturdy cross bars and tube brackets secure the cufflinks on the cuff.
