Here’s an appealing antique strand of graduated banded agate beads.

The crisp brown and white stripes of each bead contain a semi-translucent band where the light is warmly reflected, bringing softness to the necklace’s striking impact.

The diameter of the beads ranges from 11.9mm to 15.9mm. I’ve had them expertly restrung and the length is 16 1/4 inches.
