This is a new pendent recently configured with an unheated, Asian area possibly burmese, ruby. Weight is 2.01ct. with visible silk/rutile inclusions & calcite crystals in the lower portion of the stone. The stone is certified by GIA as unheated & is a treat to see under a scope, the other stones are very good & the contrast in color is eye candy. the pendent is 1.5" in length, gold work by John-stevie...

This is 11/14/2015 & the pendent has been redone, the tourmaline is verified as Brazilian, which raises the appraisal on the stone by 50%+ and the ruby has been replaced with a larger, cleaner, ruby, also cert as untreated, 3.02ct, mozambique, what a difference-steve...

This is a pendent upgrade, I have replaced the bottom ruby with a new stone, a 1.58ct Mozambique GIA certed untreated stone. Color is good, pretty clean. Total ruby content is now over 6.5cts of very nice material & overall a pendent with 'look at me now' presents-steve...:cool:
