Magnificent, this is the largest and heaviest antique Victorian Scottish sterling silver hardstone brooch that we have ever come across!

Quite an early piece and beautifully made the brooch showcases a very large egg shaped brown and cream agate stone banded in dramatic wavy lines. It has a gently domed top with an elegant satin polished finish. The sterling silver frame features thick solid silver twisted wire embossed in a floral pattern . A decorative silver safety chain adds to the stately appeal.

The Victorians were absolutely fascinated with the natural world and these picturesque examples of Scottish "pebbles" were sought after and treasured, fueled by Queen Victoria's great love and affection for Scotland and the jewelry created there. Specimen brooches, those created to showcase impressively large or beautiful examples of hardstone, were to become very fashionable and madly popular.

GEMSTONES: Scottish agate, specimen stone measuring a tad over 58mm x 42mm, Presidium tested

DATE: 1860, Victorian
