Scotia Gems , Nova Scotia Agates and Gems

Wearing our agate jewelry is like having a piece of Nova Scotia to carry with you! We collect our Nova Scotia gems from the shores of the Bay of Fundy. Each gemstone is cut, polished and set in settings of sterling silver or 14/20 gold-filled wire.

Agate is the official gemstone of Nova Scotia, so our jewelry is truly Canadian! Each one of our settings is designed and crafted around an individual gemstone. No two are exactly alike. The rich colors and mesmerizing swirling patterns look beautiful set in rings, bracelets, pendants and men’s jewelry. Agate Jewellery makes a wonderful gift for a friend or a special present for yourself. What a beautiful way to wear a symbol of your Canadian heritage!  We also carry jewelry made from labradorite, ruby, tourmaline, lapis lazuli and more.

 John Hood, who makes our jewelry, also crafts  clocks and ships. The clocks are made from brass and wood, and the model ships range from 1700s era models to 1900 era models.
