STRIKING BLACK AND SILVER PENANNULAR

This sterling silver British made Scottish agate penannular or split brooch is hallmarked "HG&S Sterling." It is a traditional design called a penannular, or split ring, and is used to adorn tartans. The sterling on this piece is impeccable and hallmarked by a prestigious British sterling maker. The dyed black agate shows its true color of brown peeking out from under the black to give character to the brooch. This form of Scottish agate jewelry is an ancient design with a modern aesthetic. It is easily worn on sweaters, coats, and blazers. It is the perfect complement to winter wool, a striking accent for Harris tweeds and plaids. The brooch measures slightly more than 2 inches diameter with beautiful sterling silver findings.

The Celtic brooch or the penannular brooch is a type of brooch clothes fastener, usually large like this one. Penannular means formed as an incomplete ring. Queen Victoria loved Balmoral Castle and the traditions of Scotland. Quickly matched by the enthusiasm of the Queen's subjects, this became a popular jewelry style.
