When I created these earrings, I had Spring in my mind as their shape represents flower buds.
The inside of each bud carries 24 rubies from Zambia, all set by hand.
To emphasize the rubies, I plated the surface with ruthenium, with the outer skin plated in gold.

The combination of the gold and the black plating with the red ruby is dazzling.

The ruby belongs to the corundum family of gems, and is the birthstone for those born in July.
