I am a jewelry designer and gemologist. I love creating beautiful heirloom jewelry for clients all over the world. In this blog, I feature many of my designs and current projects as well as articles about colored gemstones, diamonds and antique jewelry. As a historian and lover of antique and estate jewelry, I am often inspired by jewels from the past.

Holiday Cufflinks

Festive Scroll cufflinks in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

The holidays are a time of celebration, tradition and, of course, festive ornaments. Some of the prettiest ornaments in the gallery are not hanging on our tree. They are sparkling in the antique cufflink showcase.

Recently several clients asked me to create custom cufflinks as gifts for their significant other. In researching design ideas I took a look at our collection of antique and estate cuff jewels. The great variety and beauty of cufflinks made in the last century always amazes me. Here is a holiday sampling of what I found ...

Sapphire and Gold cufflinks, circa 1920.

Carter, Howe Moss Agate cufflinks, circa 1910.

Art Deco white gold cufflinks, circa 1920.

Art Deco Onyx and Pearl cufflinks, circa 1930.

Carrington Sapphire and blue enamel cufflinks, circa 1925.

To view these and other elegant cufflinks from the past,
please visit our Antique Cufflink Gallery.

In the next several months I will post pictures and descriptions of the custom cufflinks we are creating. Happy holidays to all!
