Precious Memories

The many layers and rings provide a stunning visual accent and natural framing quality to your favorite photos. Choose from brilliant purple, amber, deep blue, or natural colors. These agate frames will capture everyone's attention, without upstaging the photo on display. Designed by Anna Rabinowicz. Made from agate from southern Brazil. Available in purple, amber, blue, or natural agate. Sold individually. Brazilian agate, made in China.

              I should have looked closer to the size of the photo space inside the frame. It still turned out very nice as a gift for my mom's birthday!

                    It's cool and unique; my mom loves to collect rocks so she loved it. The only thing she complained about was the picture size being too samll. Otherwise, she said it was beautiful

                      I gave this to my sister for christmas. She loved it, but I was a little underwhelmed. I understand that there is going to be variation in the product, but the "amber" color turned out to be just brown with very little natural pattern and a huge bit on the side that looked like a giant chip but was just the rock doing its thing. I don't know if I would've sent this one out if I were the artist doing the actual making of this product. Maybe it would go to the "pretty but not so amazing" pile.

                        This frame is perfect for a small photo of someone special. We ordered the purple, and it's color is just as vibrant as in the photo.
