Vintage Goldstone Cufflinks Copper Aventurine Glass Gold Tone Setting
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a very attractive pair of cufflinks that feature “goldstones” in a gold toned metal setting. Goldstones are actually glass, made with copper dust or shavings - its invention is credited to Vincenzo Miotti, an 18th century Murano, Italy glassmaker. The cufflinks of very good quality - nice solid construction with well functioning toggles. They measure 11/16” by 13/16” at the front with a stone that measures about 14 mm in width. They are in very good condition. I believe that they date to the 1960s.
Goldstone is known as the "stone of ambition", energizing and calming, an aid to achieving goals - feel empowered by these glittery glass stones!
