    This bracelet came from the same seller as the Guilloche frame. I paid 5 Euro for this bracelet. Thoroughly tested and it is silver. I'm not sure about the "garnets" being genuine. The general consensus from antique-y friends is that this is late Victorian Scottish.

    Thanks for looking!

      Oh!
      It's lovely Bonnie!
      You certainly spent 5 euro wisely..
      I want one!

      That's a lovely example. The garnets would be cairngorms if they are stones. They could be glass, glass was used in this type of jewellery. However, this is a good quality piece so I'd more likely expect cairngorms.

      Wow!!! I'm envious... ;-))
      Perfect and so cheaaaaap, lucky you!
      Totally agree with Jewels1900 comment too.

      I'd scan all this seller's stuff ;-)

      Jewels1900 - someone else said the same thing about the stones being Cairngorms rather than glass. How can I know for sure, as I don't know what to look for.

      I am awed by this! I love these bracelets. You really found a beautiful one for next to nothing.

      Just get a jeweller to look at them. If they are stones they will be Cairngorms. I'd expect they would be based on the quality & age of the piece. Cairngorms are a Scottish stone. The story behind this jewellery is that Victoria loved visiting her castle at Balmoral. She & her family would go walking on the hills and collect the stones. They had the stones polished & made into jewellery. Typically the stones are agates & cairngorms. Sometimes citrine and bloodstone. Scottish jewellery was fashionable for a long time into the Edwardian period. You can usually date it quite well by the size & quality.

      Your's has some lovely quality agates & lots of engraving - nice & early. I'd be very happy to wear it (but be super careful - get a jeweller to check the settings first & don't bash it!).
    9. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 1 year ago
      Jewels1900 - one of the Agates was already chipped right on the point of the stone when I bought it. I can forgive it that, considering it's age and also that I have no clue where it's been during it's life. The damage can be seen in the last photo.
