Sir Walter Scott talked of the grandeur of the Scottish Highlands and Queen Victoria loved her Scottish heritage and of course Balmoral Castle and all things to do with Scotland and she herself was very fond of Scottish agate jewellery also sometimes called Scottish pebble jewellery. And here is a gorgeous antique sterling silver Scottish agate bracelet dating from the 1880’s.
Set with 8 pieces of polished agate, the natural earthy colours coming from these agates is just wonderful and looks amazing against the wrist no matter which piece is at the top.
Typically Scottish agate jewellery was set in sterling silver such as here and to highlight the quality, the claws are set as a scallop design making it even more attractive.
Laid out from end to end it measures 19cm in length plus the clasp, and each of the agate panels measure approximately 3.8cm wide.
Antique Scottish agate bracelets look fabulous on any skin tone and this one is just magnificent.
