The backs of the cufflinks are finely crafted in 14kt gold and secured on the cuff with sturdy cross bars.  On one side of the backs "PLAT. ON 14K" is stamped indicating that the tops are platinum laid over 14kt gold.

The cross bars are show the maker's mark of Charles Keller & Company - an elongated "C" surrounding a "14" (for the purity of the gold) followed by a "K".  The top and bottom of the "C" are slightly distorted by the rounded top of the cross bar.  Charles Keller was a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels from the late 19th century into the early 1930s.

Night and Day Cufflinks

These elegant cufflinks reflect the belief that diamonds should only be worn after dark. In theory, these cufflinks would be worn with the sapphires facing outward during the day and the diamonds facing outward in the evening. In practice, personal taste and habit more likely dictated whether the diamonds or the sapphires were displayed on the outer cuffs.
