ASK A QUESTION PURCHASE

This beautiful Scottish Plaid Agate brooch in the shape of a shell comes mounted on a Silver back and was produced in the Victorian era, circa 1860.

Scottish jewellery grew in popularity in the mid- 1800s as Queen Victoria’s frequent trips to her Scottish Castle Balmoral saw her return with Scottish souvenirs and jewellery which influenced the trend in Britain. 

Agate is unique and boasts various earthy colours and patterned layers which are naturally formed, earning it the appropriate nickname ‘The Earth Rainbow’.

The brooch is a beautiful piece with wonderful colour and character, and portrays the skilled workmanship of the time.
