These are so fun and unusual and classy!
Double Crystal Ruby is a new stone for me. I love it and the possibilities! It is constructed of a thin slice of natural raw ruby -- which is unmistakable as natural ruby ... Atop the ruby is seamlessly affixed a clear rock crystal. What you get is this beautiful stone which can be cut like a fine gemstone because of the crystal, but cut in a way that raw ruby would not withstand. And look at the size and impact of this phenomenal stone with that unmistakable deep pink, raw ruby color! Imagine the price of a traditionally cut gem grade ruby at this size! The boulder opal is just stunning on it's own and and the two of them together -- perfection.
... Added bonus ... POSTS! And they're not too heavy. So many of us like studs -- these are great and will come with an added set of earring backs to beat the droopy effect of some larger studs.
At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, I've tried my best to describe everything as accurately as possible -- in words and photos. Gemstones vary, of course, as do computer monitor screens, so there may be minor discrepancies.
