Victorian-era shield with crown kilt pin in sterling, citrine and amethyst
A beautiful, Victorian-era kilt pin in citrine, amethyst and sterling silver with a bold shield with crown design. While unhallmarked (which is not unusual for family-made pins of this era), the pin boasts complete British patent marks dating February 2, 1866. The pin measures approximately 1.75 inches tall. An ideal pin for a period-authentic Scottish kit.
One of the most prized stones in antique Scottish jewelry making, banded agate is a beautiful stone with distinct layers of colors and designs. Hues can range from browns and golds to reds, whites and even blues. Many classic Scottish kilt pins and women’s accessories will feature multiple colors of agate set in complementary patterns.
