A stunning Scottish pebble brooch of marvelous malachite inlaid in sterling silver. The brooch is shaped like a ring, with segments of malachite delineated and held together by arcs and bars of engraved silver. The silver is engraved with a delicate zigzag design, a delightful detail. Nothing compares to the vibrancy of startlingly green malachite. This brooch is backed in sterling silver 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" in diameter. In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on antique and vintage jewels; we consider it part of their charm.
