This beautiful necklace is made of three precious gemstones : rubies, emeralds & sapphires. The emeralds are round teardrops and emeralds are carved "Leaf" & carved "Fluted". The rubies are also, carved into melon & leaf shapes. There are three large rounded blue sapphires. These gemstones are natural and earth-mined from Africa. They all have been treated, being oiled, heated, dyed, and filled for enhancement. All stones are enhanced especially with processes from the 1990's. But, these are lower quality beads, Grade B (the lowest). But, they still sell in a store for $10-$25/carat. This necklace would be very, very expensive in a retail store. All the gold accent beads & gold "horns" are vermeil. This a necklace made to look like a necklace fit for a "Queen" like Queen Nefertiti.
