These earrings are made with perfectly matched bright red rubies from Africa most likely Tanzania. This item is one of the few I offer where I did not cut the stones from raw material in rough form. They are beautiful stones but most likely they have been heated to enhance their color.
The earrings are constructed of solid 18k gold with a fine ribbed-pattern setting for the stones on the drops. The posts/hangers which are finely crafted measure approx. 1/2″ long. The drops are approximately 3/16” wide and 1/2″ tall (to the top of the ring that attaches to the post/hanger). The overall length from the top of the post to the bottom of the drops is approx. 15/16″.
