My husband and I purchased this necklace for our daughter's 18th birthday. She loved it.
The ruby was more of a pink than a red hue, but beautiful nonetheless.
I bought this necklace for my best friend's 40th birthday (ruby is the stone for 40). The picture does this necklace no justice! It has a domed effect to the pendant and its sparkle and craftsmanship are far superior to what I would have gotten for the price elsewhere. Blue Nile's service, value and selection are three reasons why I'll always start and (hopefully) end my search for cherished gifts with them.
The necklace is beautiful and delicate. It sparkles and shines. I was concerned that it would be a little small since someone had made that comment, but it was perfect. My girlfriend loves it. I am quite the hero.
