Carmen Lúcia Ruby Earrings
The Carmen Lúcia Ruby Jewelry is a reproduction of the spectacular 23.1-carat Burmese ruby ring, donated in 2004 by philanthropist Peter Buck in memory of his wife, Carmen Lúcia. A faceted Austrian crystal replicates the ruby’s extraordinary color and brilliance; trillion-cut cubic zirconia mimic the original’s two triangular-cut diamonds. We commissioned the Carmen Lúcia Ruby Earrings to create an ensemble of legendary beauty. Sterling silver base, all genuine rhodium plated. Each stone is 14x10mm oval shape, which would be the equivalent, if a real Ruby of approximately 7.00 carats.
