We lust over these rubies. Bundled in strands like juicy currants, their red color symbolizes intense emotions, brilliant ideas, intuition, and manifestation. Rubies are in fact a kind of sapphire, with an excellent hardness second only to diamonds! This 140 carat beaded necklace features smooth flattened spherical beads that graduate in size from 5mm near the collar to 9mm resting center at the heart. Knotted along strong brown braided cord, this timeless piece is finished with a recycled 18K gold hand engraved button.
