A dramatic Scottish pebble brooch of colorful stone inlay and 15ct gold. An oval mosaic of red, white, green, and banded agate inlay, reminiscent of traditional Highland plaid, is set in a simple gold frame. The colors are bright and cheerful. This brooch is backed with Scottish slate and finished with the pin and c-clasp common to this era. Circa 1860.

Scottish pebble jewelry is one of our favorite categories of Victorian jewels. It evokes the image of Queen Victoria and her love of Scotland and all things Scottish. Once the fashionable English ladies see their lovely young Queen wearing her Scottish jewels, Scottish pebble jewels become all the rage and continue to be worn throughout Victoria's reign.

Details.....The brooch measures 1.9" by 1.55". In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on antique and vintage jewels; we consider it part of their charm.
