This is a 1800-century silver buckle from the South of Sweden. It is engraved and has two faceted red glass stones. They would be sawn on to the fabric to hold a shawl or cloak together. This type of jewelry was often used as bridaljewelry by the commons. I found some very similar ones in the museum. It´s not really right to post this as victorian as this isn´t english but that´s the only way to post this and show it´s age. I am certain it´s from the 1800's century, but it could be older. I have not yet been able to find out who the maker is. This buckle looks a bit "lord of the rings elf like" to me. Need to get myself a cloak...
