Vibrant green agate is expertly-carved to yield a positive relief image of a lone figure, within the face of this bold and beautiful ring. The green agate’s natural layers allows the foreground figure of the stone to present in a stark white, against a lush green-hued backdrop. The oval agate stone is held in a raised bezel setting with open back, all in a rich, sunny 18k gold ring head, with matching shank. The shank bears full English hallmarks, dating the piece to 1905.

This piece bears only the most minor and typical age wear; some very slight scratches to the gold and some faint flakes to the edge rim of the agate. Overall, this piece has held up beautifully over the years.
