“Seeing the mud around a lotus is pessimism. Seeing a lotus in the mud is optimism.”
― A. Kalantri

One of the most sought after gemstones in the world, rubies have been synonymous with love + devotion for centuries. Known as "The King of Gems", they symbolize integrity, prosperity & generosity.

Hand engraved and set in a sterling silver pendant featuring designer Adel Chefridi's striking "Lotus Cushion" flower motif, this exceptional jewel is paired with an antiqued sterling silver chain and polished off with a satin finish for added allure.

A sister to sapphire, Ruby rates a 9 on the Moh's Scale of Hardness (which assesses a gem’s ability to withstand scratching). That makes them the second hardest material known to man... after diamonds... but an equally first-rate gift idea.

Length: adjustable; 16"-18".

THE DESIGNER

Handcrafted in
New York + Tunisia

As childhood playgrounds go, Adel Chefridi's was pretty special: the Mediterranean jewel of Carthage/Tunis, Tunisia.

Built on the remains of the Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Andalusians, Ottomans, and more, these material cultures all left behind a rich tapestry of knowledge, stories + artifacts. For a burgeoning young artist like Adel, it was an expression of beauty goldmine. So it is no surprise that in 1998 when he first traveled across the Atlantic to New York and found himself enveloped in the thrilling diversity of that great city... and its material cultures... Adel felt right at home.

Today, in concert with his sister studio in Tunis, Adel's Hudson Valley work space serves as a vibrant conduit for the exchange of skills and knowledge with relatives back in Tunisia. Empowering his family, women, and the local community at large, this magnetic connection to the timeless roots of his birth -- coupled with Adel's keen eye for contemporary style -- serves as an enduring touchstone for his intensely meaningful, one of a kind design aesthetic.

Another important hallmark of Adel's approach to his work? Respect and kindness. He sources only the finest materials from ethical and conflict-free suppliers, and along with Firecracker... proudly stands behind his workmanship without exception.

Rooted in a long history of art and craftsmanship, the goal of our creative work is to wake us up to beauty around and inside of us. Giving us a fresh breath of love, optimism and self esteem, and helping us celebrate life with hope and passion.
