A beautiful citrine gemstone of around 15 carats graces this Scottish sterling silver Celtic knot brooch. The citrine is beautifully faceted and a lovely shade of pale lemon yellow. These quartz gemstones are known as 'Cairngorms' in Scotland and they include amethysts and smoky quartz.
The round stone is mounted in a rex/crown style mount with cut out sides, it sits nice and high allowing the light to shine through which further enhances the stone's sparkle. The stone is framed in a decorative border of Celtic knotwork. Celtic knots are complete loops that have no start or finish, they symbolise how life and eternity are interconnected and they speak of love, loyalty and togetherness.
Bearing full Scottish hallmarks this piece is lovely quality and in excellent condition with only light wear in keeping with age. It has a pin back with a rollover clasp and is stamped on the back with 'T*E' for Thomas Kerr Ebbutt, a 'thistle' for Scotland, 'castle' for Edinburgh and date letter 'S' for 1973.
The brooch is an elegant compact size measuring 1-3/8"(3.5cm) in diameter, sits 10mm tall and weighs 9 grams. The citrine measures 17mm diameter, roughly 15 carats and it has been tested and verified using a Presidium Gemstone Tester.
A fabulous piece of half a century old Scottish jewellery and a classic Celtic love token, lovely silver accent accessory good for the gents or the ladies!
