An unusual silver brooch that was made for the tourist trade in Scotland circa 1860-1880. 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, especially as it has a heart in the centre.
