These gold moonstones cufflinks are simple and refined. Moonstones have long been prized for their color and their sheen known as adularescence. These are cabochon cut, bezel set, and exhibit these qualities. There was a belief that moonstones were droplets of the moon and had protective qualities, adding to their broad appeal.

They measure approximately 1/2 inches long X approximately 3/8ths across and would please either a man or a woman. The color lends itself to almost any shirt or pattern. They are marked 585 on the connecting bar, indicating 14 karat gold. They are circa 1920 and most likely English origin. They will be presented in a black velvet cufflink box.

Completely original and in excellent condition.
