Made popular by Queen Victoria who loved the Scottish Highlands, antique Scottish silver agate bracelets and brooches became very popular and here is a lovely antique Scottish silver agate bracelet dating from the 1870’s.
Typically made in sterling silver like this one here, they were set with agates found in Scotland, polished and set into jewellery such as bracelets and brooches, and this one is just divine with not only the sections of beautiful agates and exquisite hand engraving, but also the form of the buckle design which can be worn at different lengths.
There are three sections of agate, each cleverly set with four triangular pieces of agate and separated by the engraved links and at one end is the buckle attachment and at the other the ability to wear it as a buckle and at different points.
Laid out from end to end, the bracelet measures 19.5cm and each of the three holes allow it to measure to 19cm, 17.5cm and 16cm making it incredibly versatile and practical. The agate sections with their wonderful earthy colours measure 1.9cm wide and the buckle section 3.4cm wind and day or night, this Scottish agate bracelet will always look so good.
A wonderful piece of Scottish jewellery connected to Queen Victoria’s love all come together in this antique Scottish agate bracelet that will be worn with pride.
