Lapis and Diamond Cufflink and Stud Set, 18K, French, circa 1990
Lapis Lazuli and diamond 18K French yellow and white cufflinks and stud set. The 8 fine blue lapis match well in both their cabochon cut and vivid blue color. The diamonds surrounding each lapis are bead set in 18K white gold. The estimated diamond weight is 1.25 cts. The diamonds are all near colorless (H), and very slightly included (VS1).
This six piece set is in fine condition. The cufflinks detach (the gold bar opens), for ease of putting on and taking off. The cufflinks measure .5 inches across and are 1.25 inches in length, measuring from the top of the lapis cabs.
The shirt studs measure just over .25 inches across the stud.

Over the decades of our stewardship as a small but exemplary purveyor of the jeweler's art, we have strived to offer a fine and authentic selection, in excellent condition, of collectible jewels from all highly sought time periods at competitive prices and even lower prices, if possible. In the process we have had the extraordinary good fortune of meeting remarkable people - some collectors, others just extremely interesting individuals who have taken the time and effort to examine their lives and select things that tend to make them smile, or admire, or just wonder at the exciting endlessly creative and nuanced panoply of jeweled artifacts.
