Ruby Drops

Way back when, well, a couple of years ago, I went on a long buying spree. It lasted several years. One of my acquisitions was a strand of large ruby faceted tear drop gemstones. I was mesmerized. I hadn't ever seen rubies that large in person.

Instead of taking away from their intrinsic elegance, I made a necklace using a single drop, with 14k gold filled chain and clasp. I love gold and ruby together.

The color is difficult to describe. It's not red, but it isn't pink either. The closest color I can think of is a bright sweet raspberry. Or the color of some of my favorite fuchsias.
