Victorian Scottish Silver Pink and Gray Granite Brooch Pin

$ 890.00

It seems to me that most jewelry has meaning and symbolism in every design choice. Shape, stone selections, materials all carry meaning, or maybe they are only intended to be ascetically pleasing. Victorian jewelers did both so well.

This Scottish brooch, from around 1880, stands as a remarkable testament to the artistic prowess and ingenuity of its time. At its center is a starburst crafted from intricately engraved silver that is adorned with an array of pink and grey granite stones. Each line seems to echo the movements of celestial bodies, evoking a sense of cosmic wonder and mystery. Measuring 48 mm north to south, 42 mm across, and a depth of 12 mm, this brooch is substantial in size and remains surprisingly lightweight at 16.8 grams, a testament to the deft touch of its Victorian-era maker. The absence of any discernible marks only adds to the brooch's enigmatic charm. Yet, its Scottish provenance is unmistakable, evident in its unique combination of materials and design elements that speak to the cultural heritage of the region.

In the hands of its Victorian Scottish maker, this brooch has become a work of art. It is an expression of creativity and craftsmanship that continues to captivate admirers more than a century later.
