RARE SET OF VICTORIAN SCOTTISH PEBBLE CUFFLINKS



These cufflinks are quite rare examples of gentlemanís antique accessories.
They are genuine Victorian period cufflinks made from sterling silver (unmarked)
and Scottish agates which comes under the heading of Scottish Pebble jewellery.
This fabulous 'Scottish' jewellery (often made in England not Scotland) is more normally
made into pieces for women - ie brooches, bracelets and occasionally earrings etc
but only occasionally do you find a fine a set of menís cufflinks.

Although the metal is unmarked they are definitely sterling silver set with two types of Scottish agates.
Most likely the orange & mustard stones are Jasper and the dark green will be Bloodstone.
It is not unusual for Victorian jewellery not to have a metal content stamp ie sterling silver
or the Lion Passant that you find on Sterling flatware etc and in fact the pieces
of jewellery that are hallmarked are quite rare.

Each oval disc measures approximately 15mm x 11mm and combined they weigh 5.6 grams.
Condition is very good with no damage or repairs of any consequence - the figure 8
link on the back of one is a little out of shape but this doesn't affect wearability.

They DO NOT HAVE THEIR ORIGINAL BOX - the box shown in the photos does not belong to them
and I have only used it for display, itís not a cufflink box anyway.
They will be sent in some sort of nice box or jewellery bag depending on what I can find
but it won't be an antique one.
