Carmen Lúcia Ruby Pendant
The Smithsonian 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 Pendant to create an ensemble of legendary beauty. Sterling silver base, sterling silver chain, all genuine rhodium plated. 1"l. with 18"l. chain and spring ring clasp.
