Raw Ruby Studs - Passion
Sterling silver stud earrings feature organically shaped, raw gemstones. Some consider uncut, raw gemstones to carry the purest form of that stone's energy. Studs measure approximately 2/3 inches long.
Ruby: Known as Ratnaraj or “The King of Gems” in Sanskrit, rubies were once regarded as more beautiful and valuable than diamonds. Coming from the Latin rubeus meaning red, the finest, most vivid, reddish-purple rubies are called Pigeon’s Blood rubies. Associated with fire energy, ruby has always been a talisman of passion, love, protection, prosperity, faithful passionate commitment and closeness. Ruby evokes the sensual pleasures in life, stimulating the heart and increasing desire and energy. All natural Rubies have imperfections within them, including color impurities and inclusions of Rutile needles known as “silk.” These inclusions help distinguish natural Ruby from synthetics and actually increase the rarity and value of the stone. Ruby is the birthstone for July.
