Rough Ruby Raw Crystal Pendant Necklace Oxidized Sterling Beaded Chain

Details

Genuine faceted ruby beads wire wrapped in oxidized sterling silver form a dainty 18 inch station chain necklace for this caged vintage rough, raw ruby crystal pendant by bohemian jewelry artisan Margaret Crow

* Sterling silver ruby necklace
* Faceted pigeon's blood faceted ruby beaded station chain
* Oxidized sterling silver wire wrapped rough, raw vintage Burmese ruby pendant
* One of a kind jewelry
* 18 inches long
* Small hand crafted sterling silver hook and eye clasp

If you're looking for a piece of jewelry that is both elegant and earthy, this fancifully opulent, almost medieval, necklace is an interesting choice. This thrilling little lavalliere is a study in contrast with its upscale genuine faceted pigeons blood red ruby beads against the oxidized silver wire wrapping.

The depth and intensity of the colors and primitive styling of this necklace give it the feeling of an ancient artifact. The sense of history and a mysterious air that invites daydreams of days passed long ago, days that were slower and more innocent, perhaps.

The vintage natural rough, raw Burmese ruby is very old stock from the estate of a member of the Mobile Rock and Gem Club, Dr. Albert S. Dix. Dr. Dix passed away more than 20 years ago and his widow, Eleanor, preserved his collection until her own death 3 years ago. There is no way of telling how long the crystal was in his possession but it was on a very old, brittle catalog card when I bought it.

I made the cage for this necklace in such a fashion that all of the crystal faces are visible. The crystal has been left as it came from nature, merely cleaned and left in its rough state, therefore the sides of the crystal are a bit bumpy and the ends are shiny with a lovely chatoyance.

I handmade the linking rings, oxidized them and used them doubled for a fluid and secure chain. I also forged the oxidized sterling silver hook and eye clasp in the same size range as the terminal beads for a fluid appearance. The clasp may be exchanged for a different size or style of handmade clasp at no extra charge. Please contact me for styles and sizes that I make.

Ruby is known as a stone of protection and healing. It has a long history of being associated with members of royalty and has always been the pirate's dream. Precious stones such as ruby were highly valued in times past because they offered greatly concentrated wealth that could be easily concealed in turbulent times.

This necklace will arrive packed suitably for gifting in a pretty display box, tucked into a handmade heavy silk drawstring bag.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This necklace was inspired by the beautiful rough raw Burmese crystal that I wrapped for the pendant. The crystal presented a challenge to wrap because I wanted all of the faces to be visible, each of them has a special kind of beauty that I wanted to show.
