When agate accessories appeared on the runways a couple of years ago, it was impossible to predict that they would still be relevant beyond a season or two. Today, though, it's easy to see that this variety of chalcedony quartz is more than just a fly-by-night trend - it's a timeless, natural stone that exudes an irresistible, earthy elegance.
Though agate is found on everything from watches to rings, its presence is especially prominent on a statement necklace. Case in point: this otherworldly Sequin Green Agate Fringe Necklace ($148), an amazingly detailed piece that stars faux green agate chunks supported by a variety of chains and multicolored beads.
You don't have to wear a conversation starter to pull off agate, though. Try this Kendra Scott Maude Pink Agate Necklace ($70) for a more demure take on the look. With its sinewy chain and vibrant stone, it's perfect to wear against a casual, solid colored dress.
A chunk of hefty metallic agate shows the stone's natural beauty perfectly. This Ali NY Agate Slice Necklace ($60) is a great choice if you're going for an understated, effortless look that plays well with everything from your favorite little white dress to a colorful floral frock.
