A wonderful bracelet of various Scottish agate stones from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in silver gilt, the bracelet features six large links, each comprised of three rows of beautiful Scottish agate ovules set into a lovely etched surface. Each link is slightly domed and graduated and features gorgeous floral etchings surrounding four Scottish agates in an east-west bezel setting. Included in the vibrant array of stones are carnelian, bloodstone, and banded agate. The natural stones vary in color, including earthy shades of green, orange, red, brown and grey. Completing the bracelet is a floral etched motif decorating the large rounded-square hinged push clasp and a safety chain that provides additional security when worn. On the back of the bracelet, in the center is a lovely cursive inscription, "A H". In person, the ensemble of stones make a colorful statement, and the stylish design is perfect for stacking. This unique Victorian bracelet would make a special addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measures approximately 7 1/8" in total length and the surface measures slightly more than 3/4" wide at it's widest and has a depth of about 1/8".
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is great. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver gilt setting and the clasp and safety chain are secure and in good working condition. Overall, the agate stones are in excellent condition, however, it appears that at least four of them have been replaced prior to us acquiring the piece. Due to the replacement, the stones are not inlaid as perfectly as the originals.
