Natural Red Ruby Sterling Silver Necklace
An enchantingly simple gemstone pendant showcasing a serene 7mm x 5mm pear-drop of natural red ruby, elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the warped, alien landscape of Arizona’s Antelope Canyon. Formed by the erosive actions of collected rainwater during the monsoon season, this otherworldly setting, characterised by its undulating walls of warped, contorted sandstone, looks better suited to the distant clime of Mars than this sunny southwestern state.
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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
