A superb sterling silver malachite pebble bracelet from the Victorian era! Hailing from the mid 19th century Scotland, the piece is made of sterling silver and features vivid green malachite stones. The malachite stones have beautiful rich green hues with varying wondrous flowing and banded patterns to individual segments, all amalgamating beautifully in a picturesque display. A medallion flower design features at the centre of the bracelet, accented with six malachite inlaid 'petals', creating a striking and charming look. Seven rectangular malachite inlaid links make up the rest of the piece, all of them connecting to each other by a simple hinge. Bordering each malachite section is beautiful hand chased patterns, adding further texture and charm. The clasp is integrated into the design with a slightly heftier link at the back of the bracelet, allowing for the tongue connection to insert into the link. A safety chain is connected for extra security. The length of the bracelet measures 16cm (6 3/4" inches), and would suit a smaller to medium sized wrist. Typical of 19th century Scottish pieces, this piece is not stamped, albeit tests to sterling silver.

Similar Scottish Victorian style bracelets can be seen in the "Victorian Jewelry: Unexplored Treasures" by Dawes and Davidov, page 83.

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

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!
