This splashy yet demure Ruby Diamond Drop Necklace combines so many fabulous design elements while managing a minimalist, harmonious, even restrained and stark overall look. How is this achieved? Attention to every detail. The piece is a dynamic variation of a lavalier necklace which drapes in a Y shape, suggesting the typical chain punctuated by hanging pendant. It is based on an asymmetrical double pendant négligée—a necklace of fine links with two parallel pendants suspended at different lengths—which came about in 1900 as an example of the new delicacy in jewelry design during the Edwardian period. Crafted in 18K yellow gold in the 21st century, circa 2010s, the necklace features two drops culminating in dramatically elongated pear-shape faceted rubies surrounded by halos of round diamonds. The silhouette is sexy, like a plunging neckline that elegantly highlights your decolletage.

The chain is comprised of all diamonds and rubies, each meticulously bezel-set in a flexible articulated line. The chain flows in a pleasing repeating pattern of four round diamonds followed by one square ruby, set diagonally for extra flair. There are 24 square rubies total throughout the chain. The diamonds are equivalent to G-H color and VS-SI clarity. The settings are all open to the back with additional cutouts on the sides, including the three diamonds set on the concealed push clasp, to allow light to hit the gemstones from all angles and maximize their rich luster and sparkle. The clasp does not interrupt the flow of stones, in keeping with an exceptionally designed and constructed piece such as this. The pattern in the chain changes to all diamonds just before it flows through an Art Deco-style ribbon of baguettes channel set in 18K yellow gold that seems to float as it loops around twice.

The beauty of each shape, color, gesture, form, and line all work together in this rich yet minimalist piece to create a quiet tour-de-force. It is difficult to name a favorite element. The pear-shaped haloed rubies, the bezel set all-gemstone chain, and the elegant ribbon of baguette diamonds all come to mind.

Length of the necklace measures approx 12" when closed with clasp. When necklace is open, necklace measures approx. 18" in length. Drop is an additional 3" in length. 24 square-cut rubies. Diamonds estimated G-H colors, VS-SI clarity. Overall weight approx. 40.77 grams, made in 18k yellow gold. Circa 2010s.
