A faceted oval gemstone - framed with an oxidised border made of handmade silver balls - hangs suspended from a distinctive silver loop. These earrings are a great length for most people - large enough to stand out but not so big that they dominate your outfit.
It is said that Rubies are filled with love and considered one of the most powerful gems in the universe. They encourage a passion for life, improving motivation, bestowing prosperity and abundance. Also they are the birthstone for July.
Almost all rubies today are treated in some form, heating and dying being the main types of treatment. Untreated rubies of excellent quality are incredibly expensive. Due to these treatments Rubies require a little bit of extra care, always protect them from excessive light, heat and chemicals. If they do start to look a little dull, try rubbing oil ( baby oil is great) onto the surface of the stone, this will reinvigorate the colour again.
