ABOUT THIS JEWELRY

An array of jasper and agate inlays beautifully color this iconic Scottish brooch with a Celtic cross center. The pin harkens back to the mid-Victorian period when Queen Victoria herself popularized Scotland and all things Scottish after she purchased Balmoral Castle in 1848. We know this is an early piece (mid-19th century) because the pin-stem extends beyond the edge, a practice that was discontinued shortly thereafter. In excellent condition and an excellent choice as a kilt accent! (you have one, right?) Hand engraved and hand fabricated in silver.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
