Pyrite & Rose Gold Cufflinks c. 1890
This pair of antique Victorian cufflinks incorporates a material not often found in fine jewelry. Here is a very unusual use of pyrite, more familiarly known as the classic “Fool’s Gold”. Ovals of pyrite have been inset into rose gold mountings and designed as antique cufflinks with solid bean-shaped connectors.
Each plaque measures 9/16 of an inch by 7/16 of an inch (1.5 cm by 1.2 cm) and has a weight of 7 grams. In excellent condition with light wear as commensurate with age. We have chosen to not test the karat of gold as testing would scratch the surface, leave a visible trace and mar the integrity of the links. We will guarantee that they are of solid gold of at least 9k gold. Dates to circa 1890 Victorian era.
Note: Please ask if you wish to have the karat of gold tested.
