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.
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.
