An exquisite antique Scottish buckle bracelet from the Victorian era, c1870! The rare hand-wrought piece is rendered in sterling silver and features bright orange Cairngorm stones alternating with jasper and agate stones. The carved jasper and agate stones are square with scallop-esque edges, and there is a 3 dimensional stepped height with the Scottish Saltire cross carved in each centre. The earthy tones are wonderful, ranging from translucent clear/orange to banded dark brown/white to opaque brownish red (which is the jasper). Three bright faceted round-cut Cairngorm citrines dazzle from ornate pierced silver panels, each resting centrally in claw settings. The colour of the stones are a vivid amber-orange hue and each have an exceptional eye-clean clarity. Collectively the estimated weight of the Cairngorms is 15.00-carats (each measure in-between 11mm- 12mm diameter). The panels are hinged and the end bar-links or 'strap' has a nice slinky lithe feel, allowing for easy fastening. A functional lever-mechanism to the buckle works well, sealing the prong in place and securing the bracelet whilst wearing. The adjustable length can be worn to your desired fit - accommodating for a small 6 1/2" sized wrist, right up to a 8 1/2" sized wrist. Ornate hand engraving decorates the silver beautifully - masterly workmanship of scrolls, flowers and foliage accents add stunning character and charm to the distinct antique bracelet. Little engraved pear-shaped profiles drape from one end, giving the perfect finishing touch. Just gorgeous!

Scottish agate (aka pebble) jewellery was made popular again in the nineteenth century due Queen Victoria adorning Scottish jewellery and her frequent visits to her Scottish Castle Balmoral. For more information on Antique Scottish Jewellery head to the blog - Antique Scottish Jewellery

The overall condition of the antique bracelet is very good. Besides normal surface wear, the piece presents in excellent condition for the century + age! The agate and jasper stones are in great condition with no major chips or cracks. The cairngorms are in fantastic condition with just a small nick to the girdle of one stone, which is only visible under magnification. The buckle lever-mechanism works well and hinges are in good order - one panel is a slightly rigid but doesn't affect the overall aesthetics of the bracelet. A superb antique bracelet!
