Here's a stunning faceted oval cut designer ruby cab. I've border-wrapped this thick stone with sterling sliver square wire and given it my signature topper.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 1 3/4" from top of bail and is about 3/4" wide. It has a large bail and would look fabulous on an omega chain.

Note: Natural Ruby is one of four precious gemstones (including Diamond, Emerald and Sapphire) known its rarity, monetary value, and hardness (second only to Diamond). Ruby is red Corundum, an aluminum oxide mineral with chromium responsible for its rich, red color. The name comes from the Latin word rubeus, meaning red, and until 1800 when Ruby was recognized as a variety of Corundum, red Spinels, Tourmalines, and Garnets were also believed to be Ruby. All other color varieties of Corundum are designated as Sapphire. Metaphysically, ruby is revered in many cultures throughout history, Ruby has always been a talisman of passion, protection and prosperity. It symbolizes the sun, and its glowing hue suggests an inextinguishable flame within the stone that legends claim would shine through even the thickest clothing and could not be hidden; if Ruby were cast into water it would cause it to boil, and if carved and pressed into wax, it would melt the wax. It was worn as an amulet or charm to ward off plague and pestilence, warned its wearer of impending danger, kept the body safe, and banished sadness and foolish thoughts. Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
