Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Ruby & Diamond Necklace

Item #: CT9166
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I grew up on a farm in the 1950s. We had strawberry and rhubarb gardens, and of course, we made strawberry rhubarb pie. We had a chrome and black Queen Atlantic wood-fired stove. The crust was made of flour, egg, lard, a dash of salt, and a few other secret ingredients rolled out by hand. Then pure magic, red, red sweet strawberries, and tart, sour rhubarb baked in the oven. My mom’s best friend had a dairy farm and for our first strawberry rhubarb night each year, she always prepared handmade vanilla ice cream. As the pie was still steaming out of the oven like a volcano, she would place a dollop of vanilla ice cream snow at the side.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I grew up on a farm in the 1950s. We had strawberry and rhubarb gardens, and of course, we made strawberry rhubarb pie. We had a chrome and black Queen Atlantic wood-fired stove. The crust was made of flour, egg, lard, a dash of salt, and a few other secret ingredients rolled out by hand. Then pure magic, red, red sweet strawberries, and tart, sour rhubarb baked in the oven. My mom’s best friend had a dairy farm and for our first strawberry rhubarb night each year, she always prepared handmade vanilla ice cream. As the pie was still steaming out of the oven like a volcano, she would place a dollop of vanilla ice cream snow at the side.

First Bite

The first bite tradition: forks ready, mom would say now and everyone closed their eyes to taste. There was a zing of soft and sweet and a touch of sour and tongue and tooth tactile texture, a sparkling taste that glittered like diamonds.

Adults would continue onto bite two and three. We kids knew better and went for the ice cream. I remember those summer evenings, crickets in the fields, lightning bugs on the lawn, with open windows and a breeze blowing curtains into the kitchen. The 1950s were good years.

This piece has two seasons and two names, same piece, same price. Leading up to Christmas, it’s a red berry Christmas wreath. Come January, we look forward to spring and summer and it becomes strawberry rhubarb pie. One piece with two personalities allows you to easily wear year-round.

These are Burma rubies, the finest, richest, reddest rubies in the world. Sparkly, brilliant red surrounded with five infinity sweeps of diamonds circling the ten red rubies. The Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is made as though it was baked in 14K yellow gold with an 18-inch 14K yellow gold chain that leaves your strawberry rhubarb pie necklace two inches from your heart.

“Summer” Rhubarb Pie Necklace

Yes, this piece, The Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Necklace, C9166 is identical to our “Winter” Red Berry Wreath necklace which has a different item number, CT9053, different name and story, same price $1,950.

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
