Victorian Scottish Cairngorm Belt Bracelet


Queen Victoria and Prince Albert purchased Balmoral Castle in Scotland in 1852. The royal family spent a great deal of time at their Scottish estate and took to wearing the Royal Stuart plaid to special events. To accent her new northern attire, Victoria began collecting 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, granite, agate, and cairngorm. This stunning c. 1880 sterling silver belt bracelet is a piece of the Scottish jewelry made so fashionable by the trendsetting, tartan-clad queen. The body of the bracelet is made up of oval faceted cairngorm (citrine) and finished with a functioning and adjustable hand-chased belt closure.
