Sunrise-Sunset Color in a Victorian Natural Agate Necklace and Earrings

About

Set in 15kt gold, the warmth of the earth and sky come across in this earring and necklace of natural agate. In the mid 19th century when these jewels were made, the Victorians were connected to nature in sentiment and values. Jewelry of natural materlals was treated with high regard by jeweler and consumer alike. Jewelry was purchased by the aristocracy. The working families or gentry could not afford jewelry. It is a marvel for the antique jewelry collector to find earrings and a necklace that have traveled time together in perfect condition. The beauty of the neutral earth tones suits women of all complexions. The agates feel soothing and comfortable and will be worn from morning to evening. English in origin. The condition is excellent.
