Arts & Crafts Era Huge Sterling Silver & Agate Ring
A magnificent agate ring from the Arts & Crafts era (ca1910)! Extremely substantial in size, this bold ring is made of sterling silver and holds a huge agate stone at its center. The oval-shaped agate is smoothly polished and banded with stunning earthy hues, including light brown, vibrant orange, creamy white and tan. The agate is held within a sterling silver bezel setting, complete with swirled wirework detail at the base and a scrolled repousse motif that lines the rim. The wirework setting extends to a simple, stacked band underneath. A statement ring if there ever was one, this beautiful piece is an agate lover's dream and would make an impressive addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 8 but could possibly be re-sized if desired. The banded agate center measures 1 7/8" tall, 1 1/8" wide, and rests 3/4" high within its setting.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting or to the agate stone, which is intact and free of chips or scratches.
