If you give our Birthstone July Ruby Initial Necklace as a gift, it is said to be a symbol of love and true friendship. Rubies are considered the king of gems and have deep associations of elegance, royalty and glamour. It is believed that wearing a fine red Ruby bestows good fortune on its owner. Rubies inspire you to follow and reach for your dreams.

The Ruby has been a source of wonderful stories and legends. The Ruby was said to symbolise the sun, and its glowing hue represents an inextinguishable flame within the stone. Legends claimed that this 'firestone' would shine through even the thickest clothing and could not be hidden due to its strong bright red hues. It has long been believed that the wearer of a Ruby is bestowed with love, health and wisdom.

Taking pride in the authenticity, this necklace boasts a full traditional hallmark of five distinct emblems: the Maker's Mark, Traditional Fineness, Millesimal Fineness, a certification from the London Goldsmith's Company Assay Office, and the Date Letter, signifying its year of creation.

As with all handcrafted pieces, this necklace carries the mark of its artisan. You may notice minute flecks or gentle scratches, marking each piece as truly one-of-a-kind.

Drawing inspiration from the deep-rooted emotions behind gifting, our necklace promises not just a jewel but a sentiment that your loved ones can cherish forever. With dimensions of 1.8cm by 1.8cm and a pronounced depth of 1.3cm, it's more than a necklace; it's a statement. Choose from a range of chain lengths, from 16″ (40.64 cm) to 24″ (60.96 cm), each enhanced by a hand-tied Freshwater Pearl near the diamond-cut curb.

Understanding the emotional resonance of gift-giving, we ensure the necklace reaches you in a traditional jewellery box, complemented by a suede pouch to keep your treasure safe. To add a personal touch, a beautifully designed note card is included, and as a finishing touch, the box is gracefully tied with a grosgrain ribbon.

Precious Metals & Responsibility

All of the Silver and Gold is recycled. 

18ct Yellow Gold : (750 parts of Gold per thousand)

9ct Yellow Gold : (375 parts of Gold per thousand)

Yellow Gold is alloyed with copper and silver to strengthen and give it longevity.

The shade of the Gold depends on the Gold content. Therefore, the 18ct Yellow colour is richer than the paler Yellow Gold.

Sterling Silver: 925 hallmarked Sterling Silver

Gold Vermeil: a layer of 18ct Gold Plate of at least 2.5 microns over the top of Sterling Silver.

Gold Vermeil is a layer of 18ct Gold Plate that will eventually wear away over time.

The speed of this wear is affected by elements such as being exposed to water, heat, chlorine, natural body oils, products and perfumes.

I know it’s tempting to wear your jewellery while swimming, showering or at the gym, but it should be avoided.

And it’s best to put your jewellery on after applying your make-up and lovely scent.

With all of my Bianca Jones jewellery,  I believe in creating forever heirlooms, putting people and the planet first. My pieces are either made straight into metal, hand-carved in wax or using CAD and cast through the ancient process of lost-wax-casting locally here in the UK. All of the Silver and Gold is recycled. And each piece is hand-finished with care and love.

  • Bianca created me a beautiful bespoke necklace with my children’s initials. I love her jewellery, I have bought several pieces before and always recommend her to friends. Delicate pieces beautifully made. Love her style and the quality is amazing!

    Tessa McGinness
  • Bianca makes beautiful, stunning jewellery but what makes her really wonderful is the kindness and thoughtfulness she shows when you need any assistance deciding what to purchase. Excellent service from start to finish and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. This wasn’t my first piece from Bianca and it won’t be my last. Classic and timeless they will all last me a lifetime. Thank you so much!

    Nicola Hunter
  • Absolutely adore Bianca and her extraordinary work! She crated the most superb engagement ring (piece of art for) my my beautiful bride-to-be. Even in spite of being in Australia and Bianca being in the UK, communication throughout the entire process was flawless. I couldn't recommend Bianca highly enough. Big love from Australia! ♡

    Brodie Dear
  • Beautifully designed and created jewellery. Bianca helped me throughout the process to get the design right and ensured that everything was perfect. Bianca even followed up after I had received the necklace to make sure the recipient was happy with it! Gorgeous jewellery and personal service.

    Joe Laing
  • Bianca has made several pieces of jewellery for me and my partner. My first was a beautiful gold bee necklace which I literally never take off! She then made a signet ring for my partner and my engagement ring. Recently I found a special necklace I'd lost and Bianca redipped it for me and brought it back to life. She is so friendly and accomodating, we wouldn't go anywhere else now! Thank you, Bianca!

  • Bianca was an absolute pleasure to deal with...and my engraved compass charm bracelet is simply beautiful. It has become a very treasured possession. The communication with Bianca was excellent and ensured the bracelet was exactly as I wanted. I could not be happier with it and definitely hope to treat myself to more of her very special jewellery in the future!

  • Purchased one of Bianca’s necklaces as a gift for a friend and it was perfect! Such a beautiful piece and Bianca went above and beyond to get it to me in time for the special occasion. Would highly recommend! Thank you again Bianca.

  • I first stumbled across Bianca's work a couple of years ago when i was looking for a Bee necklace for my partners birthday - not only did she create the perfect design for me, she was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the whole procees. Since then I commisioned her to make my partners engagement ring and I/we couldnt have been happier with the results! The ring is exactly how i imagined it and get's so many comments when people see it - Bianca even kindly re-sized it without any fuss after i managed to get the measurements frighteningly wrong - Highly reccomended :)
