Amethyst Agate on Swirled Band w Sprouting Vines. Size 8.
This long oval amethyst agate is a gorgeous lilac with wonderful white details. I set it on one of my argentium sterling silver swirled bands and added two sprouting vines along the right edge (and two little gold dots!) Bold and soft. Size 8.
Argentium sterling silver is a silver alloy where most of the copper has been replaced by germanium which lends greatly enhanced tarnish resistance over standard sterling. It is .935 silver--more pure silver than .925 sterling. In addition, argentium sterling is produced using only recycled silver.
