Vintage Petrified Wood Agate Sterling Silver Ring Size 6.25
Offering a vintage sterling silver handmade ring with a unique stone thought to be petrified wood or at least, part of the chalcedony species which includes agates and jasper as well. Petrified wood is fossilized wood with its organic matter replaced by agate. Each stone has a one of a kind pattern. The soft browns, cream and yellow tones in this stone remind of a desert scene. Artfully framed with a scalloped border, raindrop beads, twisted silver and a sawtooth bezel typical of Southwestern handmade jewelry. Triple split shank is comfortable to wear. So much lovelier in person, the colors are rich. A unique treasure sure to be a conversation piece.
