Scottish agate / pebble jewellery became very popular in the mid to late 1800s. Prince Albert and Queen Victoria purchased Balmoral Castle in Scotland in 1852, Queen Victoria brought back souvenirs from her stay and of course what Queen Victoria did many others would follow and agate brooches and other Scottish agate jewellery became all the rage!


Unmarked but fully tested as sterling silver


Weight: 9 grams




Condition: Very good antique condition - some tiny nibbles to the edges of some agates - only visible under magnification - no cracks to the agate- they are lovely and shiny, a lovely old patina to the silver
