This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE PAIR of CUFFLINKS that were HANDMADE in the ART NOUVEAU style during the 1910s. They are HANDMADE from 18K GOLD and are stamped 18K along with a MAKER'S MARK that is either the letter P or the letter J inside a diamond shaped box. The cufflinks feature the mythological creature called a GRIFFON - a noble beast with the head, forelegs and wings of a majestic eagle and the strong body of a lion. They symbolize strength, vigilance, power, arrogance and pride. The cufflinks are set with 2 OLD CUT DIAMONDS that weigh approx. .10 ctw. One of the diamonds is whiter than the other, but this would not be noticed when the cufflinks are being worn. The ends measure just over 9/16” at the widest diameter and the total weight is 11.6 grams. FINE QUALITY & DETAIL...NICE WEIGHT!
FOREIGN BUYERS are responsible for all taxes & duties imposed by their country for the importation of any of my jewelry items. These fees are not included in the item’s price or the shipping shipping. Please contact your local customs official for details.
*A NOTE ABOUT OUR PHOTOGRAPHY – Taking pictures of diamonds to be displayed on a computer screen can be difficult, often resulting in the diamonds looking dark (especially rose cut diamonds) when in reality they are not. If you are looking at any of our pictures and feel that the diamonds look dark, please refer to the description of the item that states the accurate color and clarity of the stones.
Also, jewelry and/or diamond grading is done under 10X magnification. When you super-size our photos you will see the item in 100X magnification. Please be aware that you may see things that cannot be seen with your eyes or a jeweler’s loupe. Sometimes these images can make the item look distorted or appear to have problems when in reality it is fine. I list only high quality pieces and avoid those with problems or in need of repair unless it is described as such in the listing.
REFUND POLICY: The buyer has the right to a refund should the item not be suitable. The item must be promptly returned in its original condition without damage, alteration, repair or signs of wear when examined under a 10x jewelers loupe. Buyer is responsible for return shipping fees unless we have mistakenly misrepresented the item.
