1950s Genuine Ruby and Diamond Necklace, 18k Gold
Absolutely fit for a queen, this midcentury necklace features roughly 11 carats of the most outrageously beautiful rubies. The color is an almost unbelievable magenta, closer to red than pink but with a significant purplish undertone. Simply stunning!! The necklace is solid 18k yellow gold and the construction is very fine. Each segment is articulated which allows the necklace to drape fluidly across your collarbone. Then to make everything even better, there are 19 brilliant, sparkling white diamonds nestled between all the rubies. The total length of the necklace from end to end is 15". The very central cluster of rubies measures approximately 1" across and 11/16" long. This necklace is extremely regal and elegant. It is also a classic example of 1950s jewelry design! Timeless and exquisitely made. An instant heirloom!
