Styles of Ruby Earrings

Styles of Ruby Earrings

One traditional style of ruby stud earrings is the bezel setting. This method encloses the gemstone in metal from all sides, keeping it securely in place. The thickness of the metal varies, depending on the craftsman and style. These earrings are secure but lack the sparkle that prong set ruby stud earrings offer. Depending on the style, you may prefer a prong setting or a bezel setting for your ruby earrings.

 

Dolomite marble rubies

Dolomite is a soft mineral with important industrial uses. It is used for refractory bricks. Named after French mineralogist D. Dolomieu (1750-1801), it is a carbonate mineral composed of calcium and magnesium. Like calcite, it comes in different varieties. Some are colorless, while others are pink, blue, or yellow. Earrings made of dolomite would be very striking and show off your natural beauty.

The mineral spinel is resistant to weathering. The gemstone is usually pure red, or slightly purplish red. Any stone with a purplish or orange hue will decrease its value and quality. Its color is also important, because too dark a hue can reduce the brightness of the stone. A light color can be confused with a pink sapphire. These gemstones can be a great addition to any jewelry collection.

Dolomite is the third most popular gemstone material. It has a range of trade names, including mountain "jade," aqua terra "jasper," zebra "jasper," grain stone, and Italian onyx. The stone's color is influenced by the mineral impurities found in it. The gemstone can be used in jewelry, but you should avoid using it as a tie bar or anklet. Fire Mountain Gems and Beads does not guarantee its healing properties.

The best-quality rubies are found in a region called Mogok. This is in Burma. This region is home to the richest deposits of rubies in the world. Because they are rare, Dolomite marble rubies are extremely expensive and prized. However, some sources of rubies are controlled. Foreigners who wish to purchase rubies should obtain special permits before entering the area. There is no guarantee that your earrings will be genuine.

Dolostones are well-ordered rocks. Many elements occur naturally in trace amounts in the dolomites, but only a few are found in Dolomite itself. Some of these elements may occur in other mineral components. These ancient dolostones may also have aberrations in their calcium-versus-magnesium layering. A professional gemstone expert can help you determine if a stone has undergone any heat treatment before.

While these stones are often mistaken for rubies and sapphires, they are not. They are about 4 1/2 millimeters in diameter and weigh less than half a carat. The top three spinel stones were cut from material found in Myanmar. The blue stone was cut from Tanzanian material. The three top stones are a deep red version of the stone that is rarer than a ruby and sells for much less.
