Grey cat ring made of sterling silver and banded agate (aka Botswana agate), custom size EU 16,5-18, US 6-8. The “tabby” cat ring.
Design and materials
The grey banded agate reminded me of a grey tabby cat. So I carved the cat figure, including the tail, by hand. The grey agate stone is 8x12mmm (0,3×0,5 inch).
The grey tabby cat figure has been set in a sterling silver frame, which follows the irregular shape of the stone. The ring band has been made from 12 gauge (2 mm) 925 wire.
The soft bend lines of this sterling cat ring remind of soft lines of a cat’s body.
The ring is stackable.
The grey cat ring has not been finished yet. It can be made in any size from US 6-8 (including quarters), EU 16,5-18, France 53-57
The stone is not fastened yet. When finished the prongs will be bent to the stone. I can leave them grey not to disturb the cat’s body shape or high polish them. Sterling cat ring with banded grey agate, with the stripes and the color of a grey tabby cat. A nice and unique piece of designer cat jewelry. Please see my other kitties

Botswana Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is predominantly banded in shades of pink and gray, though some layers may contain a muted brown or apricot. Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence.
Grey Banded Agate balances yin and yang energies, harmonizes emotional, mental and physical states. This particular Agate variety is excellent for grounding and centering. It transforms negativity and heals emotional disease.
Grey Agate, like all agates, brings the wearer good luck. It was used in ancient times as a talisman to protect from storms and quench thirst. Use this stone to foster love, bring abundance and relieve stress. You can also take it on a sea journey because agate in this combination has an affinity with the sea and its creatures.
Grey Banded Agate is useful to aid the healing of skin disorders.
It is a “humble” stone, which does not shout, but softly wraps its layers of gentle pinks, brown and grays around the soul like soft, warm flannel.
