A chunky rock crystal, clear and pure, is home to s a witch's heart of natural pearls. At its center sits a dot of turquoise that hypnotically holds the eye. The bale forms a flowing gold bow with its ribbons sitting atop the pendant like a crown. This heart is grand and puffy, one of the most exciting rock crystal hearts I have found. We photograph it on a ribbon. A lovely Victorian gold chain will be a beautiful addition. Ask to see our chain selection. The heart is English in origin c. 1880.

Light on the ear they measure a petite 15/16 ths of an inch in length although they appear grander because of the nice size of the bottom orbs. Definitely a pair to wear constantly.

Gilding adds dramatic interest as does the frame around the multi-banded agate bracelet. The gold does not tarnish and has never needed polish of any kind. Not at all delicate, of sound construction and beautifully made, the bracelet stands on its own for daily wear. It is a good example of antique jewelry appreciated for its design, style, condition and workmanship. Much time and thought was put into design and manufacturing even after the industrial revolution. The English did not judge their jewelry by gold content or gemstones alone. Many, many alternative materials were pricey and a la mode such as pinchbeck, gilded metal, cut steel, paste, gutta percha, vulcanite and bog oak, This bracelet is in excellent condition, comfortable and handsomely dramatic.

Cross hatch engraving represents the scales on the gentle snakes lovingly knotted on this ring. The ring is coiled thrice in back while on top of the finger one snake is crowned with a ruby, the second with a rose diamond. Like a love knot, there is no beginning or end which is why the serpent coiled in this way represents infinite love. This is a symbolic ring for man or woman that sends the message of a strong bond between two people. It is in excellent condition and is currently a size 9. The ring can be sized by a fine bench jeweler.

How can delicate, sparkling drops have such drama and presence. The shape and individuality of these earrings is responsible for the effect. The flat photograph can show the form but not the presence of these earrings. I wore them at a dealer's show when I bought them and was tapped by exhibitors telling me they like my earrings. Beautiful light and in excellent condition, the stone setting of various shapes and size pastes is the signal of their Victorian history. The paste gems are in closed back settings and have been foiled to capture all light available at the time. At night the candles made them shimmer as if they were diamonds. To us, they are just as precious.

This rare agate bracelet, set in gold is one of the best examples of stone sculpting I have found in Scottish jewelry. The stones as elongated pyramids or abstract bows. Image 6 shows the agate shapes perfectly. Click, if you will, on a close up of the bracelet to clearly see the rich colors of the agates. Terra Cotta stippled with greenish black, mossy agate with peach, olive with charcoal ripples, peach with bisque, and a crest shaped padlock of orange, green, tan and white are the natural shades of the stones. The central stripe of tan on the padlock is lighter in person than is represented on my computer screen. Scottish jewelry played a large role during the reign of Queen Victorian and Prince Albert. This was a monarchy that steeped itself in Scottish culture and tradition. The pair built a castle in Scotland known as Balmorral Castle. There they would live and don traditional Scottish clothing of tartan with the appropriate shoes, belt and accessories. The beauty of the natural stones and the expertise of the stone carving was admired by the European non royals as well and gorgeous agate brooches, bracelets and earrings were designed, mostly set in silver. This example of Scottish jewelry is the highest quality. All parts are made by hand including the stone carving, settings and agate polishing. The bracelet comes in its original fitted box. The imprint on the box is Millidge Jewellers, Edinburgh. Though 150 years have passed seince the bracelet was made, the condition is superb. See Ginny Dawes and Corinne Davidov's wonderful book of Victorian Jewelry for examples of Scottish jewels of the era.The length of the bracelet is 7 5/8 inches. The height of the center part of the agate is 3/8 of an inch. Excellent condition

All geometry, this simple cross is covered at front with minute squares of silver. In the late Victorian period, French and Russian jewelers made pieces using a silver technique known as niello. They heated, to melting, a mixture of silver, copper, sulphur and lead to create a gunmetal or charcoal grey tone, and poured it on to silver which had previously been gouged with minute continuous patterns that were geometric or taken from nature. The jewel was then polished. In fine condition, even the bale bears niello work.

The fine quality of the above natural pearl and banded agate locket made me stop in my tracks when I glanced in a London shop window. The border glows with the luster of the pearls in their tiara settings of high carat gold. A large convex natural agate is set center as if on a pedestal. Victorians were passionate about nature and the use of natural materials is an example of that passion. They had the knack of cutting the banded stones in the way that made them unique jewels. The locket back calls for your keepsake making this pendant your personal treasure. The chain shown is offered separately. The contrasting textures of the engraved and plain surfaces together with the flower clasp make it lovely enough to wear alone. The chain price is $1800. Excellent and strong condition. English in origin.
