Rock Crystal Rock Crystal, from the Greek krystallos or "ice" refers to colorless quartz and is an April birthstone. Rock crystal was used in rings, pins, pendants and bracelets during the Art Deco period in particular, and is a hallmark of houses such as David Webb to this day.

Old European Cut The Old European Cut, the precursor to the round brilliant, is an 1890-1930 hand cut round with good symmetry and an open culet, meaning a flat facet at the bottom of the diamond instead of the sharp point of a modern round brilliant cut.

Art Deco The name is a shortening of the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industrials Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, used to represent the period from the 1920s to the 1930s. Art Deco jewelry style, in following with the rise of the machine age, emphasizes symmetry and geometry in design, typically with simple, repeated geometric patterns. In additional to natural pearl, the typical stone use in jewelry of this period is diamond, onyx, sapphire, emerald and coral, cut into geometric shapes reflecting advances in cutting. Cartier in France is a leading house of the period, and American houses including Tiffany and Company also produced exceptional pieces during this era.

Unique Elements
These Art Deco cufflinks are exactly what you should picture from the time period – diamonds, crystal, platinum, lots of shine and glamour. Wear them with a silk French cuff shirt with ropes of pearls and an arm full of diamond bracelets or with a tuxedo for a look that would have made Fred Astaire jealous.
