Ralph Destino designed high end mens jewelry during from 1958 to 1971 when he sold the company and began working for the Cartier company. These gold filled cufflinks are superb in quality, design and condition. They measure 1 inch in diameter, 1/4 inch in height and have the rich look of 18K gold due to the 18K gold plate. The jet black glass stone is bezel set and is embellished with an etched gold filled circle. Cufflinks are marked DESTINO. The lines you see on the outer braided frame are not cracks or defects but soldering lines and this is the way the cufflinks were made.
Truly exquisite cufflinks.
