Scottish Bracelet, Silver and Agate, Victorian, Agate Padlock
This is one of those ever so popular Scottish Agate Bracelets. Queen Victoria made the Scottish "pebble" jewelry very popular when she frequently visited Balmoral Castle, in Scotland, which is still a retreat for the royal family today. This bracelet contains 7 large pieces of agate, set in unmarked sterling silver. Each piece of agate measures 7/8 of an inch North to South, and 3/4 of an inch East to West. All pieces are in excellent condition. At some point, a safety chain has been added. The padlock also has a lovely piece of banded agate on top of the silver, and the pack of the agate, padlock, contains a pocket, covered with a glass bezel, with braided human hair. Once again, I feel this is a sentimental piece, perhaps holding the hair of a young lady's fiance or husband. The bracelet is 7 and 1/2 inches long. It is circa 1870. Note: Please forgive the fact that you can see my shadow and that of the trees in some of the agate. There is no discoloration.
