This handcrafted statement ring features a beautiful piece of bright pink banded Agate, that measures approximately 20mm x 14mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver backing and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring has then been sanded smooth and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
I have created this ring in sizes 6 - 6 1/4 (Australian sizes L 1/2 - M), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 AGATE LORE:
Historically, Agate has been discovered with the artefacts of Neolithic people, and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Its medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, and spread throughout Africa and the Middle East into Russia. Agate sparked a world renowned stonecutting and polishing industry in Germany that flourished from the 15th to the 19th century, and exists today.
Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. It also helps to encourage security and self-confidence. It is a great crystal to use during pregnancy, and to help new mothers avoid the "baby blues" sometimes experienced after giving birth. Agate stops the burning desires for things we do not need, and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs. It helps writers express ideas in marketable form, and also stabilizes the imagination and inspiration of artists.
