Larter & Sons Period Rings

By Arthur Anderson

Larter & Sons was a prolific maker of cufflinks and other gentlemen's accessories during the late 19th century and through much of the 20th century.  Their output ranged from fine gold and gem-set cufflinks, rings and dress sets to less expensive, but equally well made, accessories crafted in lesser metals.

In the early 1920s the firm created a collection of beautifully designed, finely crafted men's rings reflecting the arts and architecture of past historic periods.  These rings were known collectively as the "Period Rings". 

The Period Rings were announced to the jewelry trade in a series of graphically striking advertisements that matched the beauty and designs of the rings.  Below are advertisements for the Larter rings inspired by ancient Egypt, the Renaissance, Gothic architecture, the Classical Revival of the 1700s and the reign of Louis XV in France.
