This is an antique Scottish silver pebble florette pin that is 2 1/4” in diameter and is heavy and really well made. The stones are MONTROSE grey striped banded agate, carnelian and bloodstone and the center piece is brandy colored cairngorn stone that is hand cut. The setting is really heavy and thick and you can tell this was hand wrought. The stones are arranged in a geometrical pattern fitted into a circular brooch.

The frame of the brooch is a delightful engraved and scrolled silver design which softens the precise pattern of stones.

The “T” pin and “C” clasp are entirely original. A small ring has been added at some time to make the piece possible to be worn as a pendent. It is best worn as a brooch. The condition is excellent.
