As with all fine jewels,  you should examine cufflinks closely from every direction.  The backs of these cufflinks and studs are crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Note the sturdy brackets and cross bars that secure the links on the cuff.  Please excuse the reflections from our camera.

This dress set was crafted by the jewelry firm Carter, Gough & Company,  makers of fine gold and platinum jewelry during the first decades of the last century.  The maker's mark for Carter, Gough  - a small arrowhead surrounding the letter "C" -  is visible on the reverse of the cufflinks and shirt studs.  To the left of the maker's mark is the precious metal mark for the purity of the gold ("14K").
