18k cluster stud earrings set with 2.07ctw unheated rubies and accented with diamonds weighing 1.6ctw.
These are vivid red rubies from Mozambique. They may not be Burmese but they are that ‘Pigeon Blood’ fiery red, a superior specimen not usually found, whether as loose stones or in finished jewellery.
On each stud, the ruby is set into a cluster twice its size, but the stone is not lost.
This is because the diamonds in the cluster are sized to the main stone, and the tiered stacking of the cluster ‘lifts’ up the main stone.
The oval cut ruby bordered in a proportional halo is very attractive to the eye.
The whole cluster is aligned in a way that’s both rounded and oval. Its plush form is why a classic pair of studs like this is memorable, beyond a wardrobe essential.
Each cluster stud comes to 16mm by 13.5mm.
