A wonderful Scottish circular gold pin from the Victorian era, c1870! The bonnie Scottish piece has been xrf tested to 8ct gold and 13ct gold settings - a lovely warm mellow-yellow gold hue. The particular design is referred to as a penannular, an ancient Celtic design which was worn as a cloak or tartan pin. Today this piece would make a gorgeous brooch on the jacket collar, woolies, or even as a tie adornment at the neck! The piece is accented with a round-cut natural purple amethyst and golden citrine stones at the circle ends, and there is a beautiful 'briolette' citrine which decorates the pin terminal. All stones are set closed back and foiled which gives a dreamy reflection of light when viewed from the front. The pin slides around the circle freely and once fastened to the garment the ring can be rotated to achieve your desired angle. The back is smooth and unadorned.

A superb piece of Victorian Scottish history, and a piece which would look fantastic coupled with todays modern aesthetic!
