We're absolutely in love with this striking antique Agate bird brooch!
Skillfully hand cut and polished pebble Agate cover the main body of the brooch and the torso of the bird and carefully hand-engraved details cover the Silver wings, tail and head of the bird... tiptoeing the border of the Agate inlay. The attention to detail is next to none.
We just can't take our eyes off the wonderful display of patterns visible within the stone, a true testament to the expertise of the jeweller who created this wonderful Victorian brooch.
This Victorian brooch would be an ideal candidate for a necklace conversion, if you think this is something you would be interested in then please get in touch.

EXCELLENT: A striking antique Agate bird brooch in fantastic condition, so much so it's hard to believe it was created over a century ago! The Agate is immaculate with no chips or cracks to any of the section, and the Silver is bright with only slight tarnishing adding to the antique charm. The bird is perfect with only very slight wear to some of the engravings and the pin is in fine working order making this Victorian brooch a perfect ready-to-wear gift or treat!
