This is a stunning and quite exceptional Victorian Scottish agate and Citrine brooch. The stones are mounted on a silver (tested) brooch with pattern engraving and a star motif surrounding the Cairngorm Citrine in the centre.
Queen Victoria’s acquisition of Balmoral Castle in Scotland in 1848 sparked a fashion for all things Scottish. Out of the romantic Scottish Highlands came a wide variety of Scottish pattern so called "pebble" jewellery that used coloured agates , quartz, citrines and amethysts. Agate jewellery became a Victorian passion.
This particular circular brooch measures 40mm diameter and is 15mm deep
The centre is set off by a Cairngorm Citrine measuring 10mm in diameter. To the outer are bloodstone, agate and jasper moon shaped pieces in a regular pattern. This item is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks to the stones.
This is a lovely piece of Victorian "pebble" jewellery perfect for matching with Autumn and Winter fashion lines
