This charming, Victorian, pin is made of sterling silver (tested) and grey banded Montrose agates from the Scottish hills. At either end are faceted citrine gemstones . Silver items from this period are rarely hallmarked. I am dating it to circa 1890.

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 beautiful jewellery mostly in silver but also gold ornamented with a variety of coloured agates, malachite, citrines and amethysts. Not only are these pieces truly beautiful but they are also very wearable with today’s fashions.

The pin measures 1 and 15/16”(4.9cms) across and 10mms across the widest part. It weighs 3.6 grams.

In the shape of a horn, it is set with three slivers of grey and white banded agate. The top has an engraved silver cap and is topped by a beautiful, faceted citrine 8mms by 4mms. It has the lovely deep gold colour typical of those found in the Cairngorm mountains. At the other end is another 4mms citrine ball shaped and faceted.

This very attractive Victorian pin, is in excellent antique condition . It will arrive in a gift box.

Please check out my other Scottish pieces antique and vintage at a range of prices. I have plenty more to list.
