Early Victorian, 1840's-1860's gold and carved ox bone charm pendant, designed as a hand with an engraved yellow gold (tested between 9-12K) cuff embellished by 2 cabochon garnets and a moonstone cabochon framed by a twisted gold wire.
Is anyone guiltily watching the history-porn show "Outlander"? Just me? OK. Well, I was into Victorian Scottish jewelry before that, like this agate and silver bracelet, which would have been made popular by Queen Victoria's own Scotland fetish in the mid 1800's. Whether the Celtic motifs were true to Scottish culture, or even if this bracelet was made in Scotland, is up for debate. It was meant to evoke a romantic Victorian idea of Old Caledonia, and I think it does the job.
