It is believed that Victorians of the last decades of the 19th century dreamed of a revival of the romance and artistic beauty of the early Victorians. It seemed that the Industrial Revolution of the 1850s took it away. Queen Victoria was the reigning queen during the newly endeared romantic movement. Her visit to Scotland helped brig about the huge fashion movement for Scottish jewels that swept both England and France.

Here we feature a brooch depicting the sword and shield of the Highland regalia. The production of a piece such as this demanded a high skill of workmanship and a precise skill in gem stone cutting. It is evident in this splendid example.

The brooch measures just short of 4 inches in length and is 1 1/4 inch at its widest point. It weighs 27.7 grams. The touches of silver are engraved. A tiny ring on the reverse most likely held a safety chain and pin. Overall it is in fine condition.
