A remarkable antique Victorian Scottish riviere necklace decorated with a fabulous assortment of polished cabochon agates that vary in size and shape. There are a few different varieties, all displaying their own earthy colouring and patterned layers that are naturally formed. The most striking are transparent blue agates and white banded bullseye agates. 

Scottish Pebble jewellery was at the height of popularity in the mid-1800s and saw traditional Celtic designs decorated with an abundance of coloured agates and granites. It was a personal favourite of Queen Victoria’s whose frequent trips to Balmoral Castle saw her return with many beautiful souvenirs that influenced the trend across Britain. 

The stones are set in silver frames with silver flower motifs on top and are held by a secure box clasp at the end. It’s a wonderful Victorian statement necklace, dating to the late 19th Century with a gorgeous collection of agates on display.
