Silver Scottish Banded Agate Heart Drop Necklace
Rendered in sterling silver, this lovely antique Victorian Scottish banded agate heart drop necklace was produced in the late 1800s. The central pendant banded agate has white stripes with a cut out designed band wrapped border in sterling silver. Swaying below is a heart shaped pendulum banded agate drop with a white band through the center. Banded agate necklaces were so popular in Victorian England, that by around 1900, the mines that produced these stones were exhausted.
