Ask a question

Have you ever wanted to wear a statement brooch in a Madeleine Albright kind of way? Maybe to a meeting where an arrow and shield would be appropriate? I think we’ve all had them!

These ancient symbols of Scottish warfare often occur in late agate-set Victorian jewellery, in a style popularised by Queen Victoria.

This imposing example is 8.5cm (3 1/4 inches) long. It combines bright orange jaspers with mottled green and red bloodstones.

Fine engraving covers the surface of the central St Andrew’s cross and the tip and quills of the arrow.

Made as three separate sections encased in sterling silver and joined by the central, sturdy arrow shaft, this would look marvellous on a heavy coat or scarf in winter colours.
