This charming antique 15ct Gold banded Agate ring dates from the Victorian era and is hallmarked for the year 1865.
It features a gorgeous slab of natural banded Agate, which is smooth and black apart from an elegant line of white along its centre and is set in a substantial 15ct Gold setting. It has a good weight to it and somehow has a real feeling of quality and luxury about it.
The ring was made in England in the town of Birmingham and is an excellent example of Victorian craftsmanship. The banded Agate is somewhat serious and sombre; beautifully counter-balanced by the intricate floral detailing that surrounds it.
A superb antique signet ring full of charm, easily sized up or down to fit.

This superb antique 15ct Gold banded Agate ring is a wonderful thing to behold! It has a good, sturdy feel to it and the yellow Gold is rich, buttery and luxurious.There is a little wear to the Agate commensurate with age, but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the piece. (There are two small flea-bites near the very edges, and one slightly larger scratch at the bottom left. Please use the zoom facility to view in detail!) The ring is structurally sound and the lovely Agate is set securely with no movement, and the engraving on the shoulders is impeccable! An amazing ring with an amazing past, looking for its new caretaker.
