White Coral Tuxedo Set
Elegant White Coral
| Subtly shimmering white coral set in yellow
gold. This elegant tuxedo set plays with the contrast
between the textured coolness of the white coral and the bright
warmth of the polished gold. Created by Sansbury &
Nellis in 14kt gold, circa 1920.
Three matching shirt studs with round coral tops
set in 14kt gold complement the cufflinks
The backs of the cufflinks and shirt studs are as finely finished as the fronts. Note the maker's attention to detail in the sturdy strap brackets and strong cross bars that secure the cufflinks when worn.
The backs of the shirt studs are stamped with the maker's mark of Sansbury & Nellis ("S-N") and "14K" for the purity of the gold. The backs of the cufflinks are also stamped with the "14K" gold purity mark.
Sansbury & Nellis was founded in the years around 1900 and was known for creating elegant cufflinks and tuxedo sets featuring beautiful gemstones. The firm often worked with less common gemstones like white coral and the many beautiful varieties of quartz including moss agate, carnelian and heliotrope.
