Beautiful and exquisite Scottish agate sterling silver antique Victorian butterfly brooch. The coral color banded agate is carved with beveled edges and ribs in the wings to fit its sterling silver mount perfectly. The smooth feel of the natural agate stone and the clear clarity of the striations make this brooch a visual and sensory delight. A similar brooch can be seen in Vivian Becker's book on antique and twentieth-century jewelry. This is an exceptional quality and incredibly well preserved throughout the years.
Butterflies in jewelry can imply patience, love and happiness. A wonderful symbol for a sentimental gift and heirloom.
