TheUK December birthstone is turquoise. This stone is sacred in many cultures and has been used in jewellery since ancient times. It is supposably a healing stone and good for relieving stress.
All pendants are sold on an 18" silver chain as standard unless otherwise specified in your order. 16"-20" chains are available and you also have the option the buy the pendant alone if you already have a suitable chain in your own jewellery collection.

We are regularly asked the best way to care for and clean 925 sterling silver jewellery. At Rue B, we recommend that you store your jewellery carefully in a box when it is not being worn, and that you never sleep in your jewellery; this prevents earrings and chains from being pulled upon and tangled or snagged. AVOID direct contact with perfumes and lotions- wait for these sort of toiletries to dry before putting on your jewellery. Always remember: Jewellery should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you take off. If the lustre fades, simply polish with a soft silver cloth to restore shine. We don't recommend using silver dip as this can be quite harsh, but if you do use a dip, never use it on plated or gemstone pieces of jewellery, and always rinse in water thoroughly twice after dipping. If jewellery is worn regularly, you will notice that it doesn't need cleaning so often because the natural oils on your skin will keep it clean.
All sterling silver jewellery sold by Rue B is hand packed and dispatched from our shop in York, a beautiful historic town that is well worth a visit!
All Silver comes in a lovely Rue B Gift Box
