Ruby Gemstone Pendant
We’re obsessed with this spectacular mixture of ruby and gold. Vibrant, eye-catching and out-of-the-ordinary, this gorgeous combination juxtaposes an 18 carat gold vermeil sterling silver bean with a bold, cabochon cut ruby.
Created by gemstone geniuses Juvi Designs, this is a dainty but unquestionably striking piece. These two contrasting stones catch the light and demand attention, attracting compliments despite their delicate, diminutive size.
A cabochon cut is another favourite at the Little Luxury Store. Unlike a faceted stone, a cabochon cut gem is entirely smooth and polished, bringing out the natural glow, colour and resonance of precious materials. Cabochon cut rubies offer an unusual and beautiful alternative to their typical, faceted, sparkling incarnations – we love this extra special point of difference.
A covetable treat for yourself or a stunning present for a friend, wear the Little Bean pendant as part of a layered daytime look, or with a bold shade with gold accents for en pointe evening wear.

CARE OF GOLD VERMEIL
Gold vermeil is a layer of gold over sterling silver, and requires a little care and attention. Always remove your gold vermeil jewellery when applying scent, lotions and potions, or even better, always put your jewellery on last when getting dressed.
Never wear your gold vermeil jewellery in the shower or when swimming. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your gold vermeil jewellery.
Gently clean your gold vermeil jewellery with a soft polishing cloth. As with all fine things in life, you should take care to protect your jewellery and always store in a jewellery box, taking care not to drop, or scratch.
CARE OF GEMSTONES
Gemstone hardness is based on a standard called the Mohs scale, where the higher the Mohs scale number, the harder the stone; conversely, the lower the Mohs scale number, the more susceptible the stone is to scratching, chipping, and breaking. It is important to consider this when cleaning, wearing and storing your gemstone jewellery.
The build-up of hand cream, finger prints and general dirt is common amongst your most loved jewellery, and can easily be cleaned. As a rule of thumb, gemstones at 7 and above on the Mohs scale can be cleaned with warm water, a touch of mild detergent and a soft brush. For gemstones less than 7, swap the soft brush for a soft cloth.
Many gemstones are also susceptible to damage by chemicals, water and even sunlight, where prolonged exposure to the latter may cause them to become paler. Examples include amethyst, ametrine, aquamarine, aventurine, beryl, citrine, kunzite, rose and smoky quartz.
Some gemstones such as opal, pearl and turquoise are fairly porous and should not be immersed in water for too long.
