This beautiful piece was made during a period called the Art Nouveau Era! This time was also called "La Belle Epoque" in French, which translates to A Beautiful Time. This was very true due to the gorgeous designs that came out of this period. The Art Nouveau period was famous for its flowing organic designs, flowing ladies, flowing floral designs, and regal designs. The beautiful country of Scotland is home to an amazing array of chalcedony quartz gemstone, also known as agate, which comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns. It was this quality that attracted the craftsmen of antiquity to experiment with slicing the stones and slotting them into metal settings. Agate jewelry has been produced in Scotland for hundreds of years, though it was Queen Victoria's love affair with all things Scottish that brought this distinctive type of jewelry into vogue throughout the United Kingdom. Her death in 1901 signaled a quick decline in popularity of Scottish agate jewelry, making this original style very rare and desirable indeed.
