Do you have the book ‘Victorian Jewelry’ by Dawes and Davidov? I highly recommend it, it has the most excellent eye candy on page after glorious page. This bracelet would fit right in on one of those shiny pages, it’s just the kind of window dressing your wrist is begging for.
This style of Victorian Scottish agate bracelet was made quite early, probably around 1850, it has faceted rods alternating with tapered beads and the clasp is hidden inside one of these. The beads are done in carnelian and banded agate, each capped in 9 karat gold, there is also a safety chain for added security. This bracelet measures 7.75 inches long and the long barrel beads are 23x5.4 mm, the oval ones are 12x7 mm. This bracelet weighs 12 grams.
Later Scottish bracelets would get fancier and fancier, but these earlier ones are such classics, I was delighted to find one in gold!
