Scottish jewelry demanded a high standard of workmanship and a precise skill in stone-cutting. Here is a perfect example of this skill. Scottish jewelry is sought after by specialist collectors--especially for pieces that are well made and the stones are well cut.
This Scottish bracelet features Montrose agate (pale greyish striated agates) cit in pieces that form a trefoil design. Although the mounting s unmarked, testing assures us that it is sterling silver. The bracelet may have been made in Edinburgh, Scotland or Birmingham, England. The closure consists of a heart-shaped padlock--one side in silver and the other side in agate.
The bracelet measures 7 inches in length and weighs 23.5 grams. It is all original and is in very, very good condition.
