Art Deco Platinum Natural Ceylon Sapphire Cabochon Cufflinks 16ctw
An incredible pair of natural Ceylon sapphire cufflinks from the Art Deco (ca1920s) era! Crafted in smooth platinum, each of these double-sided cufflinks has a rounded face with a stunning natural Sri Lankan sapphire stone set in the center. The rich sapphire cabochons are smoothly polished and are bezel set in an open back frame. Their luscious blue color has not been heat treated, and shows some subtle natural inclusions throughout each stone. Together, they have a combined carat weight of approximately 16.0 ctw. The backs of the cufflinks are connected by a simple platinum bar link and loop connectors. Accompanying the cufflinks is a Gemological Report issued by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) in June 2017. A classic pair of gemstone cufflinks, they would look fantastic worn by a distinguished gentleman!
Measurements: The natural sapphire cabochons vary slightly in shape and size. On average, they measure approximately 1/2" in size and are about 1/4" thick. The bar links and connectors measure 1" long. The total weight of both cufflinks combined is 13.8 grams.
Condition: The overall condition of the cufflinks is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting or connecting links, and the sapphire stones are intact and securely set. Some natural inclusions are present within each of the 4 sapphire cabochons, which appear throughout the center and the surface. This is attributed to the normal characteristics of natural gemstones, and adds to their unique and beautiful appearance.
