A fabulous sterling silver smoky quartz vintage shield brooch by renowned Scottish silversmith Robert Allison. Hallmarked in Glasgow in 1957 this brooch is extra special, Glasgow assay office closed in 1957 so these historical hallmarks are sought after and collected.

Beautifully crafted in a traditional round "wheel" design the brooch is engraved with thistle motifs that have been acid etched (oxidised) so the design just pops. It has a lovely domed profile with the smoky quartz gemstone claw mounted into a tall crown setting in the centre. The gemstone is a beautiful deep brown with flashes of purple and yellow as the light hits it.

The local name for these quartz gemstones stones that are found in the Scottish mountains is "Cairngorms" and they also include amethysts and citrines. Cairngorms have long been considered to have magical and healing powers.

A sturdy pin back with a roll over safety clasp completes this fine example of a classic Scottish silver cairngorm dress brooch, a fabulous accent accessory good for the gents or the ladies, collectible too!
