Vintage Agate cabochons
Nice quality vintage Agate cabochons, at least fifty years old. These cabochons were popular in Victorian, Georgian, and Edwardian jewellery, and are used to repair various pieces from the 1850s-1950s when damaged.
- #1 - 22.5MM round - a pretty cool one, referred to as a 'bulls eye Agate', this has been cut to resemble the eye of a bull.
- #2 - 31.75x26MM oval - a domed brown Agate cabochon with some translucent and some transparent sections.
- #3 - 28.75x21MM oval - a domed brown Agate cabochon with some opaque and translucent sections.
- #4 - 31x25.6MM oval - a shallow domed red cabochon, probably considered Carnelian. There are some saw cut lines on the back of this one which can be seen in the photo.
- #5 - 31.1x25.15MM oval - a domed brown Agate cabochon with some opaque and translucent sections.
- #6 - 33.4x26.8MM oval - a domed brown Agate cabochon with some opaque and translucent sections.
- #7 - 35.8x27.8MM oval - a shallow domed red cabochon, probably considered Carnelian.
- #8 - 41.6x30.1MM oval - an unusual brown-red stone with a taper to its edge - the edges are almost a V shape; likely for claw setting.
- #9 - 27.7x21.3MM oval - a flat red coloured stone with a signet style cut, angled diagonally from the smaller side to the larger side.
- #10 - 32.8x26.5MM oval - a shallow domed red cabochon, probably considered to be Carnelian. This piece is damaged to the top and to the right hand side, however, it is still a good size for recutting.
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
