Inspired by Castles

Ruby Natural Necklace-Pendant, Natural Ruby, Cubic Zirconia, Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver

£120.00

 
Wonderful faceted cut 8mm x 8mm round-shaped natural precious Ruby gemstone, complemented by several beautifully faceted cut sparkling 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconia gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong cluster setting!
 
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Ruthin Castle, which acts today as a visual juxtaposition of two eras; at one end of the lush local parkland, enshrouded in ivy, slumps the ruined wall of a 13th-century fortress, whilst at the other stands a 19th-20th century manor house-turned-hotel. Both hold a unique appeal, but together they offer an indescribable allure, the red walls of the hotel contrasting gorgeously with the grey and green of the medieval remnants.
 
A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
 
A birthstone for July, ruby has long represented power and success; for 8th-century Arabic mystics, dreams of rubies foretold good fortune, whilst in ancient Burma they stood for life itself.
 
Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
 
Thank you for looking. Commissions welcome
