Scottish-made, late Victorian-era agate and sterling silver kilt pin
A beautiful Scottish-made, late Victorian-era agate and sterling silver kilt pin in the shape of a St. Andrew’s cross. There is minor damage to one piece of green agate (see photos) which was expertly repaired and does not affect wearability. The piece measures approximately 1.5 inches across.
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.
