The matching earrings are equally delicious, suspended from sterling silver ear posts.
This is a delightful - and inexpensive - way of wearing rubies and these have been carved into their leaf shapes particularly well. They have a deep red, almost garnet red, colour which would go with everything.
The necklace is 17" (432mm) long and finished with a sterling silver clasp and the set comes in an elegant box, making this a super gift.
Ruby is the birthstone of Capricorn (December/January birthday) and is the stone for those celebrating their 40th wedding anniversaries.
