ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

An unusual Scottish silver brooch that was made circa 1860-1880. It is a heart shaped design with a crown above and a shield with two Claymores. It has been set with bloodstone, jasper and agate. This type of jewellery was made after Queen Victoria purchased Balmoral castle in the 1860s. Pebbles were collected from river beds and polished in to shapes and set in to silver or gold pieces of jewellery. This is a wonderful example of the art.
