During my travels in Myanmar, I collected 37 stunning rubies and kept them safe for about 7 years. Then I decided to combine them all in one piece of work. This breathtaking piece is made out of uniquely textured Sterling Slver.
The bangle is 18 cm long, 3 cm wide and the metal is 1.5 mm thick.
Mohs scale hardness: 9
A ruby is a pink to blood-red coloured gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum. Other varieties of gem-quality corundum are called Sapphires. The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means red.
The fiery and captivating ruby is a stone of nobility, considered the most magnificent of all gems, the queen of stones and the stone of kings. It is said that the powerful gem encourages passion and a zest for life and improves motivation, setting of realistic goals and is a stone of abundance and success in business.
Ruby is the traditional birthstone for July and is also a 40th anniversary gemstone.
