A showstopping pair of hoop earrings: dazzling borders of round brilliant-cut CZs totaling 1.00 carat pave the way for striking center streams of 3 x 3mm square simulated rubies. Hinged post, sterling silver earrings. CZ weights are diamond equivalents.
HOOP: An earring that loops from the front of the ear to the back.
STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
HINGED: A bale with a hinge. The hinge allows the pendant to be placed on and taken off a chain easily and without sliding. Ideal for putting pendants on chains that have large clasps.
HINGED POST: An earring with a straight post insert and a hinged backing to hold it in place.
Stones per Earring:
RUBY: A bold fiery stone, the ruby is a symbol of wealth, vitality and love. When cut and polished, the ruby's high luster is as dazzling as a diamond's. Ruby jewelry makes the perfect gift for loved ones and is the birthstone for July.
SIMULATED RUBY: A simulated ruby is an artificial stone made to imitate real rubies. Sometimes known as "faux ruby," it does not actually hold any of the physical properties of ruby, as it could be made from acrylic, plastic, glass or CZ. Simulated ruby is very affordable and can create the same sultry look for less.
