Gold and Platinum Geometric Cuff Links
Created during the 1930s, these French Art Moderne double cuff links are composed of gold and platinum. Each square gold link is modeled with arches and reverse curves, surmounted by a platinum cylinder. Subtle and streamlined, the cuff links’ strong contours and geometry create a look of miniature modernist sculpture for the cuff.
