This delightful, Victorian, belt and buckle pin is made of sterling silver (tested) and pink and grey granites from Aberdeenshire. Scottish silver of this period was rarely marked. I am dating this piece 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, granites, and gemstones. Not only are these pieces truly beautiful but they are also very wearable with today’s fashions.

The pin measures 1 and 5/8”(4.2cms) wide by 9/16” (1.4cms) across the buckle. It is 4mms thick across the buckle. It weighs 5.5 grams.

Buckles often appear on Victorian jewellery to signify ‘I am joined to you’ - so a very romantic piece which could have been worn by a man or a woman.

Exquisitely engraved, apart from the shiny buckle, it is inlaid with slivers of grey and pink granite from Aberdeenshire.
The back is plain silver with a old style c clip.

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.
