Antique Victorian Scottish Target Brooch with 20 carat Citrine Gem

Ever notice how sometimes a windy and cool Spring day has the same feel and smell as a similar day in the fall? Today is a day like that, and this wonderfully large Scottish brooch is the perfect accessory on a Spring fall-like day, it keeps my wool wrap firmly in place, despite the hefty breeze. 

This wonderful piece of ‘pebble’ jewelry is set with a huge central faceted citrine in a brownish golden hue. The citrine measures 20 mm across and 10.5 mm deep and weighs about 20 carats. The surround is set with colorful agates and small sparkling citrine gems. The brooch is hand crafted in sterling silver and has a hinged hanger so that it can be worn as a pendant when desired. The brooch measures 52 mm across and weighs 28 grams. Unmarked, it has been acid tested to verify the metal. 

Scottish jewelry became popular in the 1860s when the English court started traveling to Scotland where Prince Albert had purchased Balmoral Castle for his bride, Queen Victoria. Much of it was actually produced in England and then shipped to Scotland and sold to the ‘tourists’ who brought it right back to England as proof of their adventures.
