These handsome cuff links recall a Classical Greek (ca. 450 430 B.C.) scaraboid in The Met collection. This exquisite object is carved from a carnelian stone: on one side a heron gracefully spreads its wings, seemingly echoed on the reverse side by a woman lifting her cloak beside a washbasin.

Gem engraving flourished in ancient Greece, where gems served to mark ownership in cultures in which writing was either unknown or restricted. The scarab gem shape was introduced from Egypt; the scaraboid is a simplified variant with a smooth, convex back. Herons, cranes, and other birds often appeared on gems of this period.
