Antique collar buttons with diamonds in platinum, Cologne around 1910

These collar studs come from Cologne, the metropolis on the Rhine. Small, round fronts made of mother-of-pearl are set in platinum and each bears a sparkling diamond. The backs, bars and the impeccably functioning folding mechanisms are made of yellow gold. Until the early decades of the 20th century, a gentleman's classic evening wardrobe was not complete without stylish collar buttons for his shirt. Here is a set that cuts just as good a figure at formal invitations as it does when visiting the theatre. Because the buttons have been preserved in their antique case, they are not only in first-class condition, we also know that they were made for the jeweler Louis Weber in Cologne. A stylish set for the gentleman and a genuine testimony to the elegance of the late Imperial era.
