Victorian 15ct Gold Scottish Agate Bow Bracelet

Sold

378H

A pretty 15ct gold bracelet set with different coloured agates. It was made circa 1860-1880. Queen Victoria’s purchase of Balmoral in the 1860s prompted a passion amongst the public for Scottish memorabilia. “Pebble jewellery” was made from polished pebbles found in the river beds, and many different and inventive pieces in silver and gold were sold and survive today. This bracelet is a very good example of the craft.
