>> Erie Basin may have a very small online store, but that's not to say that the wares that are there aren't worth a look. In fact, you'll be missing out if you don't have a peek. The boutique melds the old with the new, the dated with the up-and-coming.
I keep going back to this signet ring from the 1820's -- I love how the wear of the years shows itself. The etching has been mostly eroded away, so that the gold setting and the agate stone it holds seem to have fused into one.
