This brooch is not marked but tests sterling; fittings indicate a late Victorian date of origin. This is a Scottish "pebble" pin, so called because of the agates, or pebbles, set into the perimeter. This pin's pebbles are gray and white striped half-moons. All are original and in good condition. The main feature of this pin is a 3/4" cairngorm, or faux topaz, prong-set into the center. The stone is nicely cut with a flat table. Signs of wear are minimal, in keeping with an age of 125-150 years. Pretty engraving on the surface areas of the silver complete the design. There are signs of some very old repair work on the back. The hexagonal pin measures 1 3/8" across and is 1/2" thick. Queen Victoria popularized this type of jewelry; she treasured things that reminded her of Scotland, where she and Prince Albert had happy times together.
