One of my favourite ever Scottish Agate Brooches. This large piece measured nearly 3" inches long.
Each Section of the Silver Brooch is inlayed with Scottish Montrose Agate, my personal favourite with the beautiful Dove Grey and soft blue tones.
All you collectors will know Queen Victoria Started the rage for Scottish Agate Jewelry with her love of the Scottish Highlands, often giving Scottish Agate Jewelry as Wedding Gifts to members of her court and close family.
This is a wonderful rare example featured in several books on the genre. The Brooch is a Fern leaf another Favourite Victorian Motif as in the language of Flowers Fern meant Fascination and Magic.
I hope you enjoy taking a look.
