We crafted this striking pendant necklace from a Victorian banded agate collar button, mounting the stone in a sterling bezel. With it's beautifully even stripes of rich transluscent earthtones, it's the perfect backround for our own little antique-style fly, cast in sterling silver. Measuring approximately 7/8" in diameter, hung from antique sterling silver cable chain for a necklace length of 22" not including pendant drop. Victorian society was obsessed by all things found in nature and consequently insects were especially favorite subjects for jewelry design in the 19th century. Flies in particular had symbolic significance and were used sometimes as representations of human mortality and by extension spiritual humility, as well as considered representative of adaptablity and resilience. They can also represent the idea of secrets, or secret keeping; just like the fly on the wall sees everything but tells no one. Underlining the symbolic meaning of the insect is the gemlore of banded agate: considered by the Victorians to be a stone of inner peace, and emotional healing, especially helpful in times of mourning or loss. In excellent condition with some light wear to the edges of the stone and our own special patina formula to bring out the details.
