Have you ever seen another pair of cufflinks by her?? The hand carved Jade Scarabs are individually bezel-set in sterling. As usual, her use of materials and color is interesting and attractive. The mossy green colors might be a little darker in person than in most of the photos, on my monitor at least.In such a versatile, wearable color and appealing motif, these cufflinks will stand out handsomely on your cuffs. The inside of the finding bars is also signed "Sterling" following a pie-shaped symbol. On the beige underside of the hinged top of the black velvet-covered original box is "Neiman Marcus" in script. On the underside of the fitted insert pad is a store sticker with initials "NM" and numbers. "Jade" is handwritten in script near the sticker. The cufflinks measure about 3/4" by 1/2" wide by about 3/8 deep and together weigh 12.3 grams.
The box measures about 3-1/2" by 2-3/4" by about 1-1/4 deep. The cufflinks are in Very Good vintage (pre-owned) condition with the usual dirt, scratches and tarnish, due to age. Examining them closely with my jeweler's loupe, I note traces of original white glue or cement residue on the side of one. There are expected irregularities in the carving and natural stones that only add to their unique charm and beauty. Absolutely nothing of consequence and they are SO handsome!
According to her website, Collins, who was a vendor at Neiman Marcus for 23 years, has been designing jewelry with her signature style since 1975, creating mystical, mythical, magical jewels using every possible stone and mineral from the earth: historical artifacts, old Chinese coral, rare jade, fossils, cameos, carved stones and antiquities from all over the world. Rebecca combines the items with an alchemy that is easily recognizable by her many fans across the globe.
This pair of cufflinks, combining interesting carved Jade scarab beetles and sterling to wonderful effect, is an excellent - and rare - example of her work! Perfect for collectors of Rebecca Collins, Contemporary Jewelry Artists, Jade, Egyptian Revival and of course, cufflinks. Although I doubt you will want to part with them, these cuff links present beautifully in their original Neiman's box and would make a terrific gift.
A striking and interesting conversation piece to wear that will bring the romance and allure of ancient Egypt to your wardrobe and your collection as well. A fabulous and unusual example of Rebecca Collins' one of a kind jewelry, they will look sensational on and make a superb addition to your collection.
