Every gal ought to have a little faux alligator case filled with loose gemstones like Rue did. She bought fine stones whenever she came across them and then would have them set in custom pieces over the years. Here is one of her deep red garnets; the perfect rock to buy someone special (or yourself – your special!) and maybe have made into a piece you design some day. It measures 7/16″ long by just over .25″ wide. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
