Welcome to the wonderland of agate jewelry! Agate is an exceptionally intriguing gemstone because no two agate gemstones are alike. Found all over the world in a rainbow of colors—including solids, stripes, swirls, speckles, and plumes—agate is as varied as nature itself!
Greek legend says agate was found in the Achates River in Sicily (now called the Drillo River), but agate has also been discovered with Stone Age remains. In our extensive collection of agate jewelry here today you can select from over 150 unique agate treasures. Blue lace agate... green agate... purple agate... agate beads with bright or subtle bands of color! The variety in our agate jewelry reflects the world of timeless beauty that inspires our agate jewelry designers.
A variety of chalcedony, agate is found hidden inside the rough exterior of volcanic rock, where it is created by mineral deposits in cavities formed by hot gas bubbles. Polishing brings out its glossy translucent luster, and concentric bands of surprising color resemble the rings of a tree trunk. No wonder ancient cultures believed agate jewelry had magical powers of protection! Even today, one can imagine wearing an agate necklace, agate ring, agate pendant or agate bracelet as a good luck talisman.
For someone who is earthy, artistic, spiritual, playful, or coming up on a twelfth or fourteenth wedding anniversary (agate is an alternative gift for either year)—select a gift of agate jewelry today!
