He was one the most brilliant military minds of all time. Both Napoleon and Patton hailed him as one of the greatest generals who ever lived. Credited as the "Father of Modern Warfare," King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden was a brilliant strategist with boundless courage to match. He struck fear in the hearts of his enemies. But the warrior king had a weakness. Her name was Ebba Brahe.
They fell in love. He wanted her to be his queen. But the king's mother felt that Ebba wasn't fit for her royal son, so she kept them apart. Gustavus was heartbroken and the stunning ruby and diamond necklace meant for his true love sat alone in his palace for centuries. That same necklace inspired our own tribute to royal romance: the Regalia Lab-Created Ruby & DiamondAura® Collection.
Each of these red and white treasures is fit for a queen. Our Scienza® rubies are scientifically grown, crafted in laboratories with precise equipment that recreates the high pressures and heat that nature uses to create gems deep below the surface. Scienza is chemically identical to the natural gemstone and display a better color and sparkle than most mined stones, which can cost up to $5,000 per carat for this level of color and clarity.
The Regalia Pendant showcases a stunning trio of Scienza ruby ovals, set in .925 sterling silver and surrounded with glittering white, lab-created DiamondAura®. The companion pieces sparkle like a romance that never fades. While the king's affair was cut short, jewelry as timeless as the Regalia Ruby Collection will ensure that your love lives on.
