Queen Victoria loved all things Scottish, indeed purchasing Balmoral Castle with her husband Edward in 1848 and so much was her choice of fashion and jewellery followed the world over, the population craved these magnificent Scottish agate brooches such as this one here.
This particular Scottish agate brooch was made in sterling silver around 1870, and measures 4.4cm in diameter and looks amazing on any outfit.
Scottish agate brooches are sometimes also called pebble jewellery, and the agates used were found in the Cairngorms which are a mountain range in the Scottish Highlands and here there are two alternating colours of agates being used – firstly a wonderful blue lace agate, and secondly a mottled green agate.
The brooch is all hand engraved so expertly and adds so much charm and character to this Scottish brooch.
Antique Victorian era Scottish pebble jewellery comes in many forms, styles and varieties, and this is a truly beautiful piece of Victorian era antique jewellery that is still so easy to wear all the time against so many different colours of outfits and one that will always be admired and commented on.
