A good example of an antique Victorian Scottish agates bracelet, with the advantage of having a large silver buckle feature. This is such a sought after look at the moment. I love the striped nature of the agates and how each of the five panels are ribbed on the front but have a flat finish on the reverse. Each panel is beautiful and there is so much to look at in the stones.
The ends of each panel, as well as all of the buckle detailing, is in chased silver. Chased simply means the engraved designs within the silver work. There are two different buckle holes to accommodate differently sized wrists and a lovely little silver band to tuck the excess silver on the “belt” into.
The whole length of the bracelet is approx 21.8cm (just over 8.5 inches). You can fasten at two different points so it should not be an issue. Not only do the agate panels look amazing, should you decide to wear the buckle on the inner wrist but I imagine at times, you would want to show off all that intricate chase work and have the large buckle feature at the front. A versatile antique piece.
I will send in a new gift box by tracked and signed post. The boxes in the images are for display only, thank you.
