Offered here is a beautiful pair of cuff links by Tiffany & Co. Schlumberger.
These cuff links are made of 18K yellow gold with blue enamel fired over fine gold backing.
The color you see is a high temperature firing enamel. The enameling technique was perfected by French artisans hundreds of years ago. This is a very time consuming process. The gold is covered with an enamel in powder form and fired in the kiln at a temperature over 1300 degrees F. Schlumberger used PAILLONNE` process in which 24K gold foil was first laid on the 18K gold body of the gold item where enamel was to be applied.
The top bar measures 16.9 mm long by 7 mm in diameter at the ends.
The fluted ball at the bottom measures 9.18 mm in diameter.
These cuff links weigh 15.8 grams.
