Banded Agate and Gold Cuff Links


Composed of banded agate and gold, these oval cuff links date from the late 19th century. Each oval double link is set with a conforming agate tablet traversed by a diagonal layer of white, within a gold bezel that is engraved with dart motifs. With their intriguing, richly-colored material and strong banding, these original cuff links convey a bold, modernist vigor.
