An exceptional antique Scottish malachite bracelet from the mid-Victorian era, c1870! Made of sterling silver, the stunning bracelet features fourteen malachite segments which are inlaid and form a striking geometric Greek Key pattern. The malachite stones have beautiful rich green hues with varying wondrous flowing and banded patterns to the individual segments. The malachite was likely sourced from the Ural Mountains in Russia which was a main source of malachite in the 19th century. Each of the seven hinged panels are adorned with hand-engraved flourishes to the silver surface, and there is a hand-etched border which is stepped down in height, adding a subtle three-dimensional look to the bracelet! A tongue clasp, which is integrated into the design for a seamless look, secures the bracelet with a firm click. Typical of 19th century Scottish pieces, this piece is not stamped, albeit tests indicate sterling silver.

A wonderful piece of Scottish history, and still as wearable today as it was two centuries ago. A striking green beauty!

Mid-Victorian, c1870
Sterling silver (tested)
Natural (14) malachite stones, light and dark green hues.

The condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear to the silver and stones, there is no apparent damage to the silver, or major chips/cracks to the stones. The clasp works well. Overall, superb for her age!
