A trio of stones that get on gloriously--amethyst agate, koroit opal and golden rutilated quartz are set simply in 22k gold on argentium* sterling silver. The simple 5mm wide band measures an 8 but fits more like a 7 1/2 due to the moderate width.
*Argentium sterling silver is a silver alloy where most of the copper has been replaced by germanium which lends greatly enhanced tarnish resistance over standard sterling. It is .935 silver--more pure silver than .925 sterling. In addition, argentium sterling is produced using only recycled silver.
