An elegant pair of18K yellow gold Art Nouveau cufflinks set with rose-cut and single-cut diamonds. The cufflinks have a classic design of whiplash curves typical of French jewelry, but the overall appearance is more akin to Russian cufflinks of the era. Indeed, the cufflinks are stamped with French import marks. The diamonds have good color and brilliance against the bloomed texture of the gold setting. The torpedo backs are connected by wired bridges.
