Carter Moss Agate Cufflinks

Moss Agate Moderne

Alluring moss agates set in striking white gold bezels.  The moss agates swirl with a tangle of green inclusions reminiscent of seaweed drifting in filtered sunlight just below the ocean's surface.  These elegant cufflinks were created by Carter, Gough in the Art Moderne style of the late Art Deco period, circa 1930.

Moss agate is a fine-grained variety of quartz prized for its dramatic green inclusions. This striking gemstone was a favorite among the makers of gentlemen's accessories and fine jewelry during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The white gold backs of these cufflinks are as finely crafted as the fronts.  Note that the backs are closed to protect the moss agates.  On the cuff sturdy cross bars and loop brackets help secure the cufflinks.
