Victorian Jewelry: VJ035

HIGHLAND STAG: This buckle motif (Order of the Garter) ring brooch is Scottish pebble jewelry at its best. The unmarked knurled (engraving technique) hollowware silver setting holds bloodstone, red jasper and Montrose agate sections. Silver was frequently unmarked to avoid the stamp duty in England. The center is dominated by a three-dimensional stag’s head with a full set of antlers and garnet eyes. (c 1870 - 1880) The original clasp has been replaced by a safety clasp. The ring for a safety chain remains. Condition: Excellent. There is a very good enamel repair at the bottom of the circle. 2 1/4" in diameter.
