Sometimes you can call a spade a spade. And sometimes a spade looks more like an upside-down heart with a stem. We can’t say for sure that this Agate ring is Victorian, so we’re calling it Victorian inspired. It sure looks Victorian, but it’s in amazing shape for being that old! What we do know is that it’s very likely someone had this stone and had the ring created just for this very stone (instead of making the ring and finding any old stone to go in it).
What We Love About It: It’s got a gorgeous brownish orange-y bands of color, mixed in with the cream (hard to capture with photography and depending on the type of light it’s under, it appears to change color). And the hand-cut piercing work is absolutely superb.
The Deets: The ring is modeled in 14kt white gold and was likely made specifically for this piece of polished agate. The agate has brownish tones, with orange undercurrents here and there, against a creamy background. It’s currently a US size 4.75 but could easily be sized up or down several sizes, either by our jeweler (see sizing options and pricing above in the listing) or by yours.
We can’t say for sure that this is a piece of history from long ago. But it sure does feel like it, even if it isn’t.
