Victorian Diamond Cufflinks

Diamonds and Scrolls


Elegant, intertwining scrolls frame raised gold centers set with small diamonds. Finely crafted in the late Victorian tradition of sculptural goldwork, these cufflinks were designed to romantically shimmer in flickering candlelight.   Created by H.A. Kirby in 14kt gold, circa 1890.

Late Victorian jewelry makers were masters at working with gold to create wonderfully detailed, eye-popping designs.  They were adept at exploiting the sculptural qualities of gold to create jewels that elegantly danced and sparkled while keeping a desirable sense of solidity and heft.  These cufflinks are a wonderful example.

The cufflinks are beautifully constructed with sturdy curved bridges connecting the oval fronts to stationary "bean backs".  H.A. Kirby was a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels who worked in Providence, Rhode Island from about 1885 to 1920.

The firm's maker's mark (a small Maltese cross in a circular recess) is stamped on the inner surfaces of the bean backs along with "14K" for the purity of the gold.
