Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1790

A beautiful Georgian dendritic agate picture frame ring. The principal stone displays fern-like markings, and has been foil-backed creating a hazy white glow as the light reflects back through it. The agate rests within a frame of flat cut garnets, a relatively typical feature of the style. Dendritic agate takes its name from a Greek word meaning tree, and it was used throughout the ancient world as a healing stone. It dates from the late 18th Century, circa 1790, modelled in 18k gold throughout.
