"LARIAT" STYLE Necklace: #2 Adjustable Sterling Silver CHAIN With RAW RUBY OOAK #2
Our July birthstone is Ruby, and I am so glad to have sourced this particular style of raw rubies for our earrings and necklaces! There are so many variations of reds and pinks in each of these pieces, and because they are "raw" cuts, their overall shapes and profiles make them perfect candidates for my style of tiny hoops!
My "Lariat" style necklaces are made with two oxidized Sterling Silver chains that are connected together with a traditional clasp in the back for either a 16" or 18" base length: one chain has a solid Silver ring at its end creating the loop or "lariat" that allows the other chain's end to pass through, and it's from this chain that your choice of stone or crystal is attached, creating an elegant, adjustable necklace that you may be tempted to play with the whole time you're wearing it!
Ruby is believed to promote loving, nurturing, health, knowledge and wealth. It has been associated with improved energy and concentration, creativity, loyalty, honor and compassion. Ruby is thought to be protective of home, possessions and family. Ruby is said to stimulate the heart chakra and bring spiritual wisdom!
We create these necklaces to be clasped at 16" or 18" long, with an extra 1 1/2" more of the chain dropped through the lariat to suspend the stone or crystal, creating a 19" max length that can be drawn up tighter if you prefer. Know that we can create a longer version by request for a few dollars more to cover the additional chain cost.
