Elegant Edwardian Tuxedo Set

Leaf and vine engraved tuxedo set. (J9502)

Elegantly Engraved


Finely engraved platinum centers filled with a leafy tangle of vines are surrounded by chased yellow gold borders with scrolling acanthus leaves.  The richness of the engraving gives this tuxedo set an elegant, radiant glow.  Created in 14kt gold and platinum, circa 1910.

The cufflinks are complemented by three shirt studs with the same finely engraved design.  The flowing leaf and vine decoration of the cufflinks and shirt studs brings to mind the rich floral and foliate designs which often embellished Renaissance tapestries and English stumpwork embroidery.

The reverse of the cufflinks and shirt studs are crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  The cufflinks are secured by curved cross bars anchored with sturdy loop brackets.  The edges of the cufflinks and brackets are gently rounded to ease the passage of the cufflinks through a button hole.

The crossbars are stamped with the maker's mark of Ehrlich & Sinnock ("E&S") and "14K" for the purity of the gold.  The backs of the shirt studs are similarly marked.  Ehrlich & Sinnock was a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels based in Newark, New Jersey until the firm closed during the Great Depression (1931).
