|margaret solow is my favorite jewelry designer, her pieces are timeless and elegant no matter what the fashion of the moment is happening. I love her simplicity and so does everyone! Her things are cherished in Japan and all over the globe for their quality and unfailing beauty. Margaret makes everything by hand in her studio, she hand picks her stones (she is VERY particular!) and strings her pieces one by one. This ruby piece is set with gold and has a gold bead at the side (and a tiny gold lobster style clasp) all strung on a dark brown nylon 16" cord. The ruby measures approx. 1cm in height.
