Ruby, Moonstone and 14K Gold-Fill
Simona Counts

Like a perfect red rose, the Ruby's rich color speaks of love and passion. Called the "Rajnapura" or "King of Gems" by ancient Hindus, July's birthstone is among the most highly prized of gems throughout history. The Ruby was considered to have magical powers, and was worn by royalty as a talisman against evil.

This beautiful pair of earrings features faceted rainbow moonstone drops (approx. 10mm) accentuated by a cluster of three tiny ruby rondelles, also faceted. The combination of the delicate, transparent moonstone and the fiery red of the ruby will grab everybody's attention for sure.

The design is finished by custom oversized 14K gold-filled ear wires that measure 37mm (approx. 1.5") and are hammered for added texture and strength.

Overall length of the earring is 53mm (approx. 2 1/8").

Handcrafted - One of a kind.

The word Ruby comes from the Latin "ruber," meaning red. It is a variety of the mineral Corundum, and is found as crystals within metamorphic rock. Corundum is the second hardest mineral, after Diamond. It comes in a variety of colors, and is considered a Sapphire in any color except red, which is designated as a Ruby. Rubies range in hue from an orangey red to a purplish red, but the most prized gems are a true red in color. Large sized Rubies are very rare and valuable.

The history of Ruby mining dates back more than 2,500 years ago. The most beautiful crystals are thought to be from Burma, but quality Rubies are also found in India, Sri Lanka, Australia, Kenya, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the United States.

It has been said that the Ruby's red glow comes from an internal flame that cannot be extinguished, making a gift of this stone symbolic of everlasting love. With its hardness and durability, it is a perfect engagement gem. And if worn on the left hand, ancient lore has it that the Ruby will bring good fortune to its wearer, too!
