For some reason, rubies just aren’t my favorite stone. I often love pieces with rubies, but the thought of rubies in general doesn’t thrill me like the idea of sapphires, diamonds, or emeralds. This ruby and diamond necklace is a great reminder that the poor neglected ruby has a lot to offer and I should pay better attention to it.
Isn’t it fabulous? I love the way the line of diamonds snakes around itself and how the rubies seem to be either dripping off the sides or growing on the diamonds like leaves. I think this would be really flattering to the collarbone area.
This ruby and diamond necklace was listed in Sotheby’s 09 October 2012 Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite sale. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
