The dreamy dentritic agate that is the focal point of this ring has inclusions that resemble lichens or a blooming plant. It is set in a solid 14k gold bezel atop a hand-textured sterling silver base plate, accented with solid 24k gold beads. The band is made from a half-round piece of sterling silver wire that has been hand-textured to resemble bark. The width of the band measures 3 mm.

This ring features a rare form of dendritic agate, also called Shazar stone, that is found exclusively in the Ken River in the Banda district of India. It is characterized by its organic inclusions that paint images of breathtaking natural landscapes. The name Shazar comes from the Arabic word “Sazar”, meaning tree. The fascinating inclusions are formed when two or more chalcedony stones trap a piece of fossilized fungus, and the fungus produces an acid or base secretion that causes the agate to become translucent and simultaneously bind it all together. Different colors may appear in Shazar stone, such as black and orange-red, and are caused by inclusions of iron and manganese. Some refer to Shazar stone as the Stone of Plentitude and believe it brings abundance and richness in all areas of life.

Size 7.5 (rings can be stretched up to ~1 size larger)

A Note About My Jewelry


I create powerful, unique, and sacred adornment crafted from Earth's finest gifts. All of my jewelry is hand-made and hand-finished, from natural and often recycled or repurposed materials. I try to use every bit of metal on my bench and not let anything go to waste. In this way, all my pieces are somehow related - melted, remelted, cut, recut, weaving together so many stories being told through the jewelry. No two items are exactly alike and my pieces will have natural imperfections - I believe it is these slight imperfections that give hand fabricated items their soulful character and appeal.
