agate

A couple of new rings from Finland have landed in my collection this week. I’ve read about the amazing beauty of Finnish agate, but I haven’t had the chance to see it close up and personal. Their soft but saturated color is just gorgeous. I love imagining artists like Elis Kauppi incorporating local stones into contemporary pieces for the first time. The stones represent a true honesty of materials in design.

Sneak peek below: Gold and agate ring by Elis Kauppi for Kupittaan Kulta (Finland, 1961)

New on Hopea: Kupittaan Kulta moss agate ring.
