Handsome set of mother of pearl cufflinks and shirt studs. The cufflinks are 9/16 in diameter while the studs are 5/16 in diameter. These probably date from around 1900. There is a maker's mark (see photograph) but I have not been able to identify it. Other photographs are available and can be emailed on request.

Very slim hardcover catalog with brief history of the diamond and the emperor and two photos of the gem, one under fluorescent light. Scan is not very good in terms of color because the lettering and decoration is gold gilt on glossy dark blue which did not reproduce well.
