Ruby-Zoisite Necklace in Sterling Silver, Earthy Green Stone Pendant



A pretty teardrop cabochon of ruby-zoisite is nestled in my handcrafted sterling silver tab setting with a contrasting copper rivet holding the bail. I sawed the pendant from sterling silver sheet making a complete metal backing to protect the ruby in zoisite stone. The sterling silver is textured with hammer marks highlighted by the antique patina and buffed surface. The green, black, and red stone and antiqued sterling silver pendant is rustic and refined, a modern heirloom you'll love to wear.

Ruby zoisite, also known as anyolite or ruby in zoisite, is a combination of opaque ruby, green zoisite, and often black hornblende crystals that form together. This unique gemstone is found only in Tanzania. The wonderful contrast of jewel-like pink and red on earthy green makes me think it's the perfect Christmas gemstone. My ruby zoisite riveted pendant is earthy and seasonless, so wear it any time you like. This green stone pendant, with its bright patches of red ruby, would make an interesting July birthstone jewelry gift.
