Ruby Ruby is called “the king of gems” in Sanskrit. Rubies have obtained the highest per-carat price of any colored stone. Ruby is a variety of corundum, a mineral species that also includes sapphire. Rubies range from orangey red to pure red to purplish red. Trace elements of chromium cause ruby’s red color. Ruby is the July birthstone and the stone for the 15th and 40th anniversaries.

Rock Crystal Rock Crystal, from the Greek krystallos or "ice" refers to colorless quartz and is an April birthstone. Rock crystal was used in rings, pins, pendants and bracelets during the Art Deco period in particular, and is a hallmark of houses such as David Webb to this day.

Pavé Set The technique of pavé (“pa-vay,”) setting involves setting small diamonds closely together with as little visible prongs or metal holding the stones, giving the impression of seamless sparkle. Pavé setting dates back to the 1700s with increased popularity in the 1900s through the present.

Round Brilliant-Cut The Round Brilliant Cut dates back to 1919, when Marcel Tolkowsky calculated a formula for proportional diamond design to maximize fire, brilliance and wearability, published as “Diamond Design: A Study of the Reflection and Refraction of Light in Diamond.” A round brilliant diamond can also be called a full cut diamond if it features the cutting standard of 57 or 58 facets.

The Gem Palace One of the largest South Asian empires in history, the Mughal Empire (1526-1857) continues to influence luxury high jewelry design, in direct elements such the 'Tutti-Frutti' carved jewels of Cartier, the sautoir designs of the 1920s and 1970s in particular, as well as necklaces and earrings set with enamel and cabochon gems in the Mughal style in the late 1960s and early 1970s in major French houses such as Van Cleef and Arpels and Boucheron. The Kasliwal family were jewelers to the Mughal Emperors, famed for their enamelwork, and intricate carving and setting of precious stones as well as rose cut diamonds. In 1725, the Kasliwals moved to Jaipur, India from Agra as the crown jewelers to Maharaja Jai Singh, and have remained in Jaipur ever since. The Gem Palace opened in 1923 and immediately became a favorite of royal families, dignitaries and celebrities worldwide, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Princess Diana and Bill Clinton. The Gem Palace is run by the 9th generation of the family.

Worn worldwide by royalty and an iconic Mughal design as well as the sautoir styles of the 1920s, this long chain with sparkling ruby beads is extremely versatile – wear it long, doubled up, in multiples or alone to dress up a sweater, a gown or a shift dress.
