Mid-Century Ming's Jade Cufflinks
ABOUT THIS ACCESSORY
Part of the beauty of vintage and antique jewels is the story behind them. These impressive Mid-Century cuff links present lustrous soft green cabochon jades, held by distinctively designed hand-engraved gold prongs, and hail from Wook Moon's jewelry establishment, Ming's. First opened in 1940 in Hawaii, eventually there were Ming's locations in San Francisco and New York. According to a currently operating jeweler in Hawaii, his customers recall that Mr. Moon offered no-interest layaway for modestly paid downtown secretaries and office workers so that they could afford to buy a piece every now and then. A beautiful story indeed. Hand fabricated in 14K gold. Accompanied by a gemological report from Stone Group Laboratories stating: Natural. No indications of polymers or dyes. Myanmar (Burma) - origin.
