Ruby has been called the stone of kings, providing protection to the owner and owner's estates as well as accumulation of wealth. In Hindu legend, ruby is the gemstone of the sun, the king of the zodiac and vital energy giver. It is this generosity that inspired this strong statement necklace featuring over 50 graduated ruby teardrops clustered in a protective line for the wearer; this is a necklace of the heart for love and energy flowing in and out. Ruby and sapphire are both corundum, an aluminum oxide with high hardness, and the deep red color arises from small amounts of chromium replacing aluminum in the crystalline structure. The gemstone is paired with the warmth of gold for a regal, revitalizing necklace.

Cost: $229.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18"

Materials:

  • faceted ruby gemstone beads
  • Czech glass beads
  • freshwater pearls
  • 14kt gold-fill beads
  • 14kt gold-fill oval chain and lobster clasp
  • Soft Touch light duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (10 lb. load test)

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. The ruby beads required a narrower diameter beading cord so greater care should be taken to avoid snags and other sharp pulls. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners.

The narrower diameter beading cord is more vulnerable to hard tugs and pulls so it's recommended to keep this out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
