Pair of Masonic cufflinks. Composed primarily of gold (or possibly gold fused with another metal), they feature rectangular faces with smooth, rectangular mother-of-pearl (possibly plastic) panels set into them. Surrounding these panels, a two-level gold border has a simple geometric design such that at the center of each side, there is a crisscross shape. Atop mother-of-pearl panels, there is a central design of a square and compass, within which is a "G" with a royal blue enamel background. Backing of each cufflink is made up of two pieces: one, soldered to front piece, is shaped like a long U with straight sides and right-angled corners; the other piece, set with a central pin at tip of first piece so that it may fully rotate within it, is cylindrical with tapered, rounded ends. Stamped into one inner side of piece attached to front is "SPEIDEL".
