The faces are set at one end with iolites cut as sugarloaf cabochons and at the other with bluish-violet chalcedonies cut as triangular cabochons.

The faces are connected by solid bridges to hinged backs...

Inside I found: three tie clips - two are gold colored and one is silver - none of them have any markings; one pair of Mother of Pearl cuff links along with two Mother of Pearl studs; one pair of ...
