A unique antique sterling silver brooch showcasing a striking Scottish carnelian specimen stone, just beautiful.
The glowing carnelian is a golden orange spattered in deep red, it is cut in a unique high sided dome shape with a flat top, almost resembling the crown of a hat, very unusual! The silver border is beautifully engraved in a pretty Victorian aesthetic pattern of scrolled flourishes with cross hatching.
Super quality and hand wrought, a sturdy pin back with a t-hinge and c-clasp completes this beauty that is a fine example of Victorian Scottish pebble jewellery. A distinctive antique accent accessory good for the gents or the ladies!
