A smart cased set of 9ct gold and moonstone cufflinks, buttons and studs. It is interesting to note that the silk inside the box reads “D.F de Silva & Co Colombo Ceylon. Under the most distinguished patronage of the Duke & Duchess of Connaught”. So they were retailed in Ceylon, where these moonstones were sourced, by a reputable jewellers. You cannot find such blue, white moonstones nowadays as the modern ones are quite opaque.
