This necklace is a perfect gift for a minimalist, or if they are born in the month of july, which this months birthstone is the Ruby. The Ruby Pendant is a simple yet elegant oval shape. The chain this Ruby pendant sits on is Sterling silver and is a box chain.
Rubies are made from corundum, a crystalline form of aluminum oxide. The ruby’s red color comes from trace amounts of the element chromium, which replace aluminum in the mineral and change its color. When corundum is red, we call it ruby. When it’s any other color, such as blue, yellow, or pink, we call it sapphire. You can identify a ruby alongside other gemstones thanks to its rich, pink to blood-red coloration.
Measurements: The chain on this necklace is 19 inches in length.
