Gorgeous, cup set, oval rivoli rhinestones in watermelon tourmaline, aka vitrail medium, grace this exquisite pair of '60s-'70s vintage gold tone mesh wrap cufflinks from Swank. Stones pop with glorious green, gold and fuchsia highlights (as only pointed rivoli rhinestones can do) from within their nugget style, high rise settings. Long mesh wraps secure via conventional pivoting bullet backs.
Swank began as the Attleboro Manufacturing Company circa 1898, founded by Samuel Stone and Maurice Baer. It became Swank Products in 1936. Well known as a leader in men's accessories, it also developed a women's line, Biagi by Swank, in 1975. The links presented can be appreciated by either gender identity.
The links' faces measure about 1 inch x 9/16 inch with a 7/16 inch profile or height. Total length of the links, including mesh portion, is approximately 2 3/4 inches x 1/2 inch (mesh). Rivoli stones are about 18 millimeters x 14 millimeters. Weight of the links' pair is approximately 42 grams.
