Ruby & Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Gemstone Necklace
A wonderful necklace featuring a stunning 8mm x 6mm oval of natural red ruby, complemented by several sparkling 1mm x 1mm faceted rounds of lab-grown cubic zirconia. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the unforgettable vibrancy of Singapore’s world-renowned botanical gardens, where every colour imaginable can be found amongst its dazzling blooms and verdant canopies.
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.
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.
Attached to an 18-inch chain, this charming 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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
