These cuff links are outstanding. Crafted in 18K solid bright gold, they feature a beautiful chrysoprase intaglio depicting a Roman soldier in profile. The engraving are hand carved and boast many fine details and finishes. They are 19mm x 14mm on the face and weigh 7.7 grams the pair. They were purchased from a fine jewelry shop in Paris during the 1960s period and sold at an estate where they were acquired for our shop. The jewelry shop was owned by Monsieur Raymond Gillet and was in operation during 1955 to 2005. This fine jeweller was a member of many professional organizations. The cuff links will be shipped in their original box.
Judging from the condition of the jewelry box, where they were kept, they probably did not leave it very often as they are in an exceptional estate condition. They show no scratches, nor nicks. The lovely green chrysoprase shows no flaws and is well saturated. These are classy men's cuffs whose size is perfect for French cuff. Their understated elegance would make a wonderful accessory for a wedding, as groom or best man. As a sophisticated accessory, they would also contribute to your looking you best to wear to work or to a black tie event.
