Story

One cannot argue with mint condition. Somehow, jewelry that has age, wear, and patina yet manages to retain its excellent condition has an unmistakable aura.

Gainsborough, the artist, owned a ring of moss agate, which is sometimes referred to as “picture agate”. So named due to the stone’s properties, its moss-like structures often resemble figures, landscapes, animals, and plants. However organic they look, these filaments are mineral in origin, and not tiny plants.

With an overall pattern of moss-like tendrils, a tiny translucent cloud of white touches one end along with a few flecks within. Bezel set, the edges of gold display a subtle wave pattern.

Classic Victorian, the shank is intricately worked with Greek key designs, leaves and tendrils as well as hand engraved patterns all in 14k rose gold. Reminiscent of the rings worn by aristocrats.

Note: The agate will appear darker on the finger. See those photographs for the most accurate look when worn.
