DIAMETER of bezel: 5/8 inch - HEIGHT of domed stone: 3/8 inch - TOTAL WEIGHT OF EACH LINK including two stones: .4 ounces - DIAMETER of magnet disc: 1/2 inch
Deco transitional to I940's Retro design (patent number 2,483,031). Very unisex. Clearly marked as "14kt". Signed (Harvey) Avedon whose company ceased production in 1976 due to a major factory fire.
The "gumdrop" shaped stones are amazonite: an icy pale green stone with white flecks. The 4 gemstones are securely set into gold bezels; each cuff link half is identical to the other half.
Avedon produced many unusual jewelry designs. The unusual feature of this pair of cufflinks is that each half is closed securely with two parts of a round magnet, just slightly smaller than the bezel surround of the amazonite. The magnet makes the closure very secure and easy to manipulate.
Amazonite is a gemstone loosely resembling nephrite and jadeite. Its meaning is that of prosperity.
No damages; no repairs.
