Open Agate.

Warmer weather calls for longer nature hikes with my dog, frolicking through dirt, streams, and rocky terrain. On occasion we come across knotty wood branches and glittery stones set in the DC regions red clay soil. Agate reminds me of these discovery adventures. Wikipedia shares with us that agate is a microcrystalline variety of quartz found in various kid of rocks. Over 3,000 years ago, Sicily was the place to be to find beautifully colored crystal forms. Thanks to creative designers and retailers beyond the valleys and streams, we can find agate wonders from our own home computer.

Thank you Samantha for wearing agate so beautifully in such a cat-like way with this bold Jaimie Rodriguez Cougar Agate Necklace. You earthy glamour NYC gal! Maybe even better and more “POW” is this shaggy pink agate, pearl, and 18K plated silver choker from Neiman Marcus.

Okay, so you prefer something more subdued but equally beautiful to rest your eyes — check out Barneys for my next purchase (yeah right). A square white agate is hugged by gold band and chain. Love it. Love it. Love it.

Now that you’re all dressed up with no where to go, have dinner on the deck with these candleholders, also from Vivre. They will look awesome set amongst the towering oak trees and a summer Rose wine.
