Ruby is a precious gemstone believed to open up your heart, associated with loving energy, and thought to activate the kundalini energy. Ruby is the red variety of the mineral CorundumI. It is also the birthstone for the month of July. When under UV light it glows BRIGHT hot pink.
These necklaces are purchased from a small jewelry maker in India, where they were hand cut & made one stone at a time. The stones are from Africa + heat was applied to show off the clarity + color of the Ruby. 99% of Ruby jewelry on the market is heat treated by applying 1800 degree of heat to a stone to dissolve any inclusions inside the stone which improves the clarity and brightens the red color. No other additives have been added to the process and the Ruby is as strong and durable as an unheated stone.
The beads range in size from 3-4mm, and many get slightly larger towards the middle of the necklace. Many have more than 150+ beads. Adjustable sterling silver clasps with approx. length 16-18 inch (may be a little longer or shorter each one is unique and handmade). The adjustable chain also makes it easy to stack them.
**if you are familiar with our moonstone necklaces from the same maker - these are more dainty, smaller hand-cut beads.
