Accessories form an important part of a woman’s wardrobe, particularly jewellery. And when that jewellery is bespoke to suit the client’s requirements it becomes even more valuable.

What are Agates?
Agates are a natural form of silicon dioxide and are a variety of Chalcedony. They can show a wide variety of vivid, multiple hues. All agates take a wonderful polish and are tough enough for most jewelry uses. Designers often take advantage of the intriguing patterns these stones have to offer to create unique and fascinating pieces. These are semi-precious stones.
Agates have been used as gemstones for thousands of years. They were some of the earliest stones fashioned by people. Today they are cut into cabochons, beads, small sculptures, and other functional objects such as coasters, book ends etc. Agate cabochons are popular and are used in rings, earrings, pendants, and other jewelry objects. Agate beads are commonly made into necklaces and earrings.
Healing with Agates
Agate is an exceptional stone for rebalancing and harmonizing the body, mind and spirit. It cleanses and stabilizes the aura, eliminates and transforms negativity. Agate is known for enhancing mental functions, improving concentration, perception and analytical abilities. It soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety.
