Victorian Agate Navette 15k Gold Ring

The thing I love most about Victorian jewelry is the sentiment behind each piece. To my delight, the Victorians used agate throughout the era, with its greatest popularity being the mid-1800’s. It was used to create all sorts of pieces - cut out flowers that showed off the stone’s layers, cabochons in Etruscan Revival jewelry, in cameos, in mourning jewelry, etc..

This ring was a part of this ‘need for agate’ obsession. Those suspicious Victorians believed agate protected you from thunder, sorcery, poison, and demonic possession. Basically, it was a talisman for all of life’s ailments, including drunkenness.

This Victorian agate ring was handcrafted in England around 1870. It’s an antique navette shaped ring with an agate as the star of the show, set in 15 karat white gold. The ring face measures 35 mm north to south, 7.5 mm across, and 5.5 mm off the finger. The band width narrows to 3.4 mm at the back. This ring weighs 3.5 grams and is a size 7. It bears the gold purity mark, “15ct”.

This ring might not actually contain wondrous and magical powers, but it certainly is spellbinding.
