Scottish brooches

Embellish yourself with brooches! Brooches from Hedvig Lindströms collection
In the Victorian Europe, Scottish brooches was a bold fashion detail that both women and men wore. Scotland was during this period of time a very trendy destination and back then tourists went on pilgrimage journeys to the Scottish highlands to hike in the landscape that Walter Scott describe in his popular historical novels. It was also the destination where Queen Victoria went for a stay at her castle called Balmoral. The beautiful brooches were produces in Scotland and usually in domestic materials, among many a soft blue taped agate from the Scottish highlands, along with another typical stone was a amber colored citrine from Scotland called cairngorm. When the supply for Scottish gemstones ran short they were replaced with a beautiful cut glass – which is the case in this stunning collection of brooches that Bukowskis are pleased to present in this theme auction.
