These Ruby stud earrings are the versatile accessories you need! They are made from high-quality 9ct Gold, and prominently feature two oval-cut Ruby gemstones. These blood-red stones are associated with protection from illness or misfortune, and are also incredibly beautiful, with a shimmering, textured colour that is both eye-catching and bold.

These handmade jewellery pieces make a great Christmas or birthday gift for someone who is born in Summer; Ruby is the traditional birthstone for July. The bright scarlet gemstone immediately lends itself to brighter coloured seasonal outfits. However, these simple and gorgeous studs can be worn all year long.

The stones are 5x3mm in size. These studs are also available with Garnet, Amethyst, Blue Topaz, and Sapphire in White Gold. A matching pendant is available also.


Generally, gemstone-quality corundum in all shades of red, including pink, are called Rubies. So drawing a distinction between Rubies and Pink Sapphires is a relatively new Corundum conundrum (sorry), having arisen sometime in the 20th century. As a result of the difficulty and subjectiveness of such distinctions, trade organizations such as the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICGA) have adopted the broader definition for ruby which encompasses its lighter shades, including pink. The Sunrise Ruby is the world's most expensive ruby, most expensive coloured gemstone, and most expensive gemstone other than a Diamond. In May 2015, it sold at auction in Switzerland to an anonymous buyer for US$30 million.
