Ruby Centers and Diamond Halos
At the center of each earring, a round ruby is prong set in 14k white gold, and this setting lifts it up above the level of the surrounding earring body. The two rubies together total 0.60 carats, and their rich, red color contrasts beautifully with the silvery shine of the metal. Earrings
A halo of small, round bright cut set diamonds surrounds each ruby, and these halos are more cushion shaped, adding an extra layer of contrast with the perfectly round shape of the rubies. All together, the diamonds in this set total 0.15 carats, but their dazzling sparkle stands out, and the use of the halo style provides a classical touch.
The bright cut setting style of the diamonds is another classically-themed element, but the lack of milgrain beading and the more squared shape of the halo push the set in a more contemporary direction. That sense is reinforced by the design of the basket protecting the backs of the earrings, as its straight lines and open spaces forgo the ornate display of more vintage-style sets. Fashion Rings
Customizing these earrings could take the form of modifications that express a more vintage aesthetic. For instance, you could add milgrain around the diamonds in the halo, switch to rose gold for the metal, and add some filigree or other type of flourish to the basket. Alternately, you could keep the contemporary overtones of the set intact and simply substitute a different type or shape of stone, particularly if there’s one with special personal meaning for you.
