Story

In a sense a type of revolution emerged during the Victorian Era - one which burst forth with a fervent interest in both the science and romance of nature. Parlors became museums in miniature with displays of exotica from Egypt to the wilds of Brazil.

Jewelry was not immune to this eruption of culture. Items such as the pendant shown here is an example of how the ongoings of the environment can make an impact.

Each piece of banded agate is unique in its own right with no two being identical. This particular agate shows hues of chocolate brown, blue-tinted white and shadow black. Carved into a pendant in the form of a stylized scallop shell, the bands of color provide even more visual depth to the already concave interior. We love carved the whorls at the top.

In its depths rests an old mine cut diamond of .27 carats (I-K color; SI2-3 clarity) cupped in a 14k yellow gold bezel. A rectangular bale is set with two (2) rose cut diamonds of .01 carat each (total .02 carats with I-J color and SI1-2 clarity). To the reverse 14k yellow gold backs the pendant.

Accompanied by a modern 14k yellow gold chain.
