This beautiful banded agate ring was classically worn in the Victorian period to ward off evil, aligning with the practices of many Turkish traditions. This particular vintage example has long prongs that really grasp the eye, and I love the way the color is distributed in this stone specimen to create a visually compelling presentation on the hand and the finger. This piece would make an excellent addition especially for someone who wants a more eclectic or perhaps a more powerful color palette.
