This dramatic and lovely tonal necklace combines six luscious drop-shaped, oxblood red rubies and matching pure silk ribbon. The precious genuine rubies are polished rather than cut, and so retain the dark red, opaque quality of their natural state. The silk cord is made from 3 lengths of silk ribbon plaited together by hand. The necklace fastens with a hand made silver hook-and-eye style clasp, which has been oxidized (blackened) to complement the dark colors of the necklace. The rubies are graduated, with the central pair being just under 0.5" (1.15cm) and the outer pair being 0.25" (7mm). The necklace measures 22" (55.8cm).
Please note that the very dark red color of the necklace is more accurately represented in the first three photos shown, the brighter colors seen in the 4th photo are due to the flash reflecting off the necklace.
Your necklace will arrive beautifully gift wrapped in a recycled gift box complete with ribbon and 'Phoenix and Hawkstag' tag.
