This is a remarkable antique bracelet featuring elements of exceptional Scottish agate in varying shades of sienna, rich brown and milky white.
Each of the agates is fastened with an expertly etched sterling (tested) links. Each of these features a detailed floral motif.
After the death of her husband Prince Albert in 1861, Queen Victoria would spend many of her remaining years in her favorite residence, Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
It was during this time that Scottish craft and decorative art would enjoy a flourish in the Western world, generating elegant and collectible items like this extraordinary bracelet.
In remarkable condition, the bracelet remains a prized exemplar of turn of the century Scottish style.
There is tarnish to the sterling, but we leave polishing to the buyer because of individual preferences on patina on antique and vintage pieces.
This is a solid and extremely well made bracelet with substance. It is an absolute beauty.
This bracelet has amazing colors, style, and size. It looks wonderful on the wrist.
We really like the fact that this is not a "delicate" bracelet, not too big, not too small.
