Victorian 14kt Mother of Pearl Diamond Button Cufflinks
A charming pair of button cufflinks from the Late Victorian (ca1900) era! Made of 14kt gold, each double sided cufflink depicts two decorative buttons, which have a realistic 3-dimensional design. Each button is hand-carved from mother of pearl, which is rich and shimmery in appearance. In the center of each button are four small drilled holes, with two strands of woven silver "thread" overlapping in the middle to form a criss-crossed "X" design. Encrusting each "X" are delicate rose cut diamonds for a lovely sparkling effect! A simple gold bar link connects each cufflink together in the back. A classic and very attractive pair of cufflinks, they would look fabulous worn by a man or woman!
Measurements: Each button face measures slightly more than 1/2" in diameter, and is 3/16” thick. When fully extended, the space between each cufflink measures 3/4" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the cufflinks is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. There is some light surface wear along the edge of a few of the mother of pearl buttons, but no significant damage or blemishes. All of the rose cut accent diamonds are intact. The connecting bar links are both secure.
