Agate gems from the Earring Boutique

I’m well aware that agate is fast becoming this year’s owl/robot/wishbone, but as someone with a bonafide interest in geology, these Earring Boutique gems are right up my street.

My pa is really into mines, so when we were kids my brother and I spent a lot of time waist-deep in water in various caverns hundreds of feet below ground in the wiles of Wales. He also had a huge collection of semi-precious stones, which lived in a chest of drawers in the garage. Those drawers are now my dressing table, but I can still remember peering into them as a chab and seeing the carefully arranged piles of gemstones.

Sadly, I didn’t pay enough attention to know if agate really counts as a semi-precious stone, and if it does, whether high street ‘agate’ really counts, but this is one fad I’m happy to get behind. I can’t wait for the dad puns when pop sees these swinging from my ears. Literally, can’t wait.

PS The pink ones look like… well, you can see for yourself. Tee hee.

  1. Agreed that agate is a bit of a fashion cliché but it still doesn’t stop the wanting! Those are tresemmé nice, might have to be a copycat and get em.
