For these sweet earrings, I started with a .925 sterling silver heart finding. From that, I have five dangles of gemstones. Each dangle is on a sterling silver ball-tipped headpin and features genuine, natural precious ruby gemstone and natural semi-precious moonstone rondelles. They are finished with sterling silver hooks and measure a little over 1.25" from the top to the bottom of the longest drop.
You will receive the exact pair pictured and it is a one of a kind a this time. I used my last on-hand supply of moonstone making this pair. All findings are .925 sterling and thus hypoallergenic for those sensitive to some metals and alloys.
These are lovely earrings. The sweetheart shape makes them equally wearable everyday or for a special occasion. A gift for a July baby, someone you love or just as a special treat for yourself!
:: About the Gemstones Used ::
* Ruby is one of the rare, precious gemstones (along with Emerald, Diamond and Sapphire.) Ruby is known as the most powerful gem in the universe. To own a ruby is to know contentment and peace. Given as a gift, ruby is the stone of friendship and love. It's also associated with vitality and royalty. It is the birthstone of July. The rubies used in this piece are 100% natural gemstone, grade A+ Micro faceted rondelles.
* Rainbow moonstone is an amazing stone that's almost impossible to photograph. The stone is "alive" with natural iridescent fire and a color shift towards blue in various types of light. Moonstone is of course associated with the Moon and with the Goddess Diana. It's a powerful stone said to protect those of a sensitive nature and bring good emotions to the wearer. Because of it's tie to emotions and the moon, it's said to be a woman's gemstone. It is also an alternative birthstone for June. (Traditionally pearl.)
