Larter & Sons Diamond Cufflinks
During the early decades of the last century some of the most elegant pairs of cufflinks were made by the firm Larter & Sons. This wonderful pair features sparkling diamonds surrounded by intricate Chinese-inspired borders. Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1920.
As with all fine jewels, you should examine the backs of cufflinks closely. Here you can see the maker's attention to detail. The ornate scrolls on the usually unseen cross bars are a hallmark of Larter & Sons.
The maker's mark for Larter & Sons is visible on one side of the cross bars just to the right of the "14K" gold mark. The maker's mark is a spring-loaded shirt stud.
Larter & Sons was founded in 1865 and made distinctive cufflinks, dress sets and gentlemen's jewelry during the late Victorian era and first few decades of the last century. The firm had offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry across the Hudson in Newark, New Jersey. It was known for elegant design, innovation and craftsmanship.
