Carrington Abalone Cufflinks

Carrington abalone and pearl cufflinks.Carrington abalone and pearl cufflinks, circa 1935.

Other projects in the gallery have necessitated a brief leave from writing about antique cufflinks. But ongoing research continues. I hope to post next month about the beautiful "doubles" created by Krementz & Co. in the years around 1900.

Meanwhile, pictured above is a beautiful abalone and pearl cufflink created by Carrington & Company. A wonderful example of the clean, elegant design favored during the late 1930s. The abalone, a dark aubergine with flashes of red and green, contrasts beautifully with the brilliance of the platinum borders and the white pearls. Crafted in platinum and 14kt gold, circa 1935.

These and other fine antique cufflinks can be found in the Antique Cufflink Gallery.
