I seem to have a problem with Regency Rose Plume Agate...every time I buy one, I find it very hard to part with it. My solution has been to buy as many as possible, hoping that eventually one will find its way to someone else! This type of agate is an exquisite stone, with opaque cream, gold, and ochre plumes floating in a pale translucent gold matrix. As your gaze moves into its depths, a luminous world suffused with warm sunlight is revealed.

This cabochon was made by Gary B. Wilson of Tucson, and like all of his work it is one of a kind, done without measurements. I like to set these very polished and refined stones in primitive silver settings, and the stone, which is set in a simple bezel, rests at a slightly offset angle on a curved back plate of heavy sterling that has been heavily heat-textured. The effect is primitive and very contemporary at the same time.

The adjustable shank is made from heavy 16 gauge heat-textured sterling, soldered at one end and open on the other for adjustability. You will see that it is narrower at the bottom, beneath your finger, and wider at the top, which enhances comfort and stability.

All of the silver was cut, worked and finished entirely by hand using the simplest tools. It has a soft, satiny feeling and a matte finish which was enhanced by a warm, iridescent patina.

A beautiful desert ring, this will become an instant favorite. 

SIZE:  It is about a ring size 6 1/2 now, and can adjust up or down to a size 5-7 or so. The agate in its bezel measures 1 3/4" x 7/8" x 5/16", or 45mm x 23mm x 8mm.

CARE:  Wash in water with soap if desired. The patina will enrich with age and the silver will brighten in the high spots as it is worn. You may restore the matte finish by buffing the silver with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad, or polish it with a silver polishing cloth if you prefer the shiny look.

PRESENTATION:  Golden World will arrive beautifully giftwrapped.  See the shop policies below for details.
