Carmen Lúcia Ruby Ring
The ring of this brilliant, sterling-silver-set parure replicates the spectacular 23.1 carat Burmese ruby ring, donated to the Smithsonian Institution by philanthropist Peter Buck in memory of his wife Carmen Lúcia. Our reproduction flanks a 14 x 10mm Austrian crystal with trillion cut cubic zirconia. We commissioned the matching pendant and earrings (sold separately) to create an ensemble of legendary beauty. Sizes 5-10
The Lúcia ring is in our Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals, National Museum of Natural History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
