An alluring Scottish Aberdeen granite cross dating back to Victorian era, circa 1880-90! The beautifully complimented granite colours include a salmon pink flecked with brown and greyish white flecked with black. These colours typical of the granite sourced from Aberdeen, Scotland, and otherwise known as the "granite city". The granite is inlayed in five sections with fine silver dividing lines placed at bottom and centred criss-cross. The handcrafted cross is made in sterling silver, it has smooth sides and back. A ring and jump ring attaches to top. Cross is not stamped, however a test indicates sterling silver. It is not uncommon for pieces of this origin and era not to be stamped.
Included and complementing with Scottish cross is the vintage, possibly antique trace chain, also sterling silver. The level of patina, heft and style of chain suits nicely with cross. Necklace is stamped 'STERLING" to bolt ring clasp.
A special piece of Scottish Aberdeen history, perfect for any avid Scottish collector..
