Victorian Refinement - IX


Victorian Scottish Bevelled Agate Cufflinks with Silver Mountings (LEO Design)

Queen Victoria reigned from 1837 to 1901—an era well-represented in our collection of handsome cufflinks.  For the rest of the month, we'll be sharing some of these Victorian cufflinks offerings, many of them recently acquired.  Click here to see all of the cufflinks at LEO Design. 

The Scots love their stones!  Colorful semi-precious (and just plain decorative) gems are used in all manner of traditional jewelry and ornamentation.  These Victorian Scottish cufflinks from the 1890's are crafted of beveled slivers of red agate.  The traditional design of the silver fasteners reflect the period and style in which the cufflinks were made.  The result is a handsome and handcrafted look which honors the stones so dear to the Scottish people.
