We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Stunning in its elegant simplicity, a faceted teardrop ruby pendant—artistically suspended from a quatrefoil and a freshwater pearl—culminates the dainty faux pearl and vermeil link chain of this Faceted Ruby Pendant Necklace. The continuous strand slips over your head. Gold vermeil. Made in the U.S.A. Natural variations will occur.
This Faceted Ruby Pendant Necklace represents rubies and countless other gemstones curated by our National Gem and Mineral Collection at our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, its over 375,000 individual specimens include several historic rubies—the Carmen Lúcia Ruby (one of the finest large, faceted Burmese rubies known) and the Star of Katmandru (a Sri Lankan star ruby).
17"l. with 1.75"l. drop.
Distinguished and prized for its bright red color and luster, rubies are the scarcest of all gemstones, commanding very high prices. Rubies are the red variety of the mineral corundum. (Any other color of corundum is considered a sapphire.) Ruby is the birthstone of July.
