Ruby & Ethiopian Opal Sterling Silver Earrings
Serene 5mm x 4mm oval natural red Ruby precious earth mined faceted precious gemstones, complimented by beautifully cut 7mm x 5mm teardrop Ethiopian Opal semi-precious natural gemstones. These gemstones are hand set in sterling silver in a claw setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by the vibrant shades of the flowers in Singapore’s world-renowned botanical garden. Graced with dazzling blooms of brilliant pink and red, these are truly a sight to behold.
A birthstone for July, ruby has stood as a symbol of power and success since antiquity; 8th-century Arabic mystics decreed that dreams of rubies foretold good fortune and great satisfaction in life. Thanks to their traditional blood-red hue, rubies have been tied to life and health throughout history – ancient Burmese warriors even believed that these gemstones rendered their wearers near-immortal.
As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, associated with love and passion. They are also said to be a decidedly positive stone, brimming with positive energy and joyous emotion, whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.
40mm long (~1 1/2 inchs), these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
