Jewelry & Gemstones

I recently bought these cuff links. They were advertised as being antique, either of British or Irish origin, with ruby eyes.

 

I'm trying to figure out if they're original, if they're actually a match, where they're from, and how old they are.

 

The main thing I'm wondering about is that the two cuff links are slightly different. First, they're a slightly different tint of gold (you can see the one on the right is a slightly more yellowy gold). The bars on the back are also slightly different (one joins smoothly while the other one overlaps). And then most notable of all--one of them has hallmarks on the forehead between the ears while the other one has them on the oval back of the cufflink. The marks appear to be the same but I can't figure out why they would have been placed differently.

 

As for the marks, what I've been able to figure out is that the first one is "O.C" (maybe the maker's mark?). Second one I can't figure out. Third one appears to be the date letter and looks like an "O" although I can't tell if it's a big or little one. Also I could be wrong because it looks like the top of the circle isn't closed. The last two marks are a 9 and 375 which are the purity marks.

 

Anyone have any idea who O.C might be or what the second mark says? Also any idea about the year mark?

 

Thanks!
