Scottish Silver Belt Bracelet

$325.00
About Details

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert spent a great deal of time at their Scottish estate, Balmoral, and took to wearing the Royal Stuart plaid to special events. To accent her new northern attire, Victoria wore Scottish jewelry. Typically made in silver, Victorian-era Scottish jewelry combines Celtic and natural motifs - like the famous highland thistle - with stones native to the region: malachite, agate, and cairngorm. This c. 1880 sterling belt bracelet is a piece of the Scottish jewelry made so fashionable by the trendsetting, tartan-clad queen. My favorite part: the replacement link that looks nothing like the others. It's an #instagramexclusive.
