SOLD Art Deco Synthetic Ruby Drop Earrings
A wonderful pair of bright earrings from the Art Deco period, c1920s/30s. The earrings are made from 9ct gold and have the most incredible synthetic rubies. The rubies are such a vivid and intense colour pink and they look wonderful in the ear. The lovely pear shape to the bottom ruby is rather striking and they are set in classic gold frames with stems between the two stones. During this period, synthetic stones were just becoming more mainstream and they are often found in pieces of jewellery from the early 20th Century, even very high quality rings. Synthetic gems have all the same properties as their natural counterparts, though they have been manmade in a laboratory.
