This charming set of cufflinks and tie tack was produced by Anson, Inc., in the late 1960s. The set consists of a small rhinestone crystal surrounded by one (for the tie tack) or two (for the cufflinks) etched black inward-curving diamonds set in gold-tone metal. The set comes with its original black box and seems to have never be worn. Therefore, the cufflinks and tie tack are in excellent vintage condition. All pieces are unmarked.

This handsome set would make for an excellent gift for any gentlemen seeking to spruce up his formal wear. For those who collection vintage men’s jewelry and accessories, this Anson cufflink and tie tack set is a great find.

About the Artist

Olaf Anderson immigrated to the United States from Sweden in 1929. He founded, as president and treasurer, in 1938, the Anderson Tool & Die Company of Providence, Rhode Island, making tools and dies for the jewelry manufacturing business up until World War II (1941), when the machinery was converted into milling machines making war-production work. In 1945, when the war contracts were completed, the company started manufacturing men’s jewelry that included a new type of a collar holder and a complete line of men’s jewelry, which included cufflinks, identification bracelets, tie clips, stick pins, tie tacks, tie chains, collar holders, key devices and money clips comprised of sterling silver, gold and silver-filled metal bases. The company changed its name in 1948 to Anson, Inc.

In 1967, along with the men’s jewelry lines, women’s jewelry of stick pins, brooches/pins and silver beads were added to the manufacturing output that used rhodium, bronze and pewter along with the sterling silver, gold and silver-filled base metals. The Tiffany Company sold Anson jewelry in its department stores.

In October 1983, Anson, Inc., declared bankruptcy, emerged from a Chapter 11 reorganization and then was foreclosed on by Fleet National Bank & Fleet Credit Corporation, which sold its assets to C & J Jewelry.

With over 50 years of experience behind it, Anson jewelry embodies all the quality and craftsmanship that one expects from one of the industry’s leading U.S. manufacturers with its expertise and stringent quality control that meets and exceeds expectations for timeless, classical design quality and functionality with lifetime warranty on its costume jewelry, insuring complete customer satisfaction. C & J Jewelery is still carrying the Anson’s trademark on the costume jewelry and continues today to manufacturer the same jewelry products at the original site. It continues to service Anson’s principle customer, Tiffany, and its other customers. The company has since branched out and added additional costume jewelry, principally men’s sportsman pendants, charms, money clips, key rings, tie tacks, cufflinks, collar holders, tie clips to the Anson lines. The product lines of baby jewelry and women’s bridal brooches/pins, stick pins, and silver beads are an insignificant portion of the products produced with the Anson name today.
