Rubellites are to tourmalines as rubies are to sapphires– such a fine variation of tourmaline that they have been deemed their own gem! They have a mystic glow against bright 22k yellow gold in these stunning stud earrings. The stark contrast brings out the richness in both the gold and the gemstone. The rubellites' cabochon cut allows for a luminosity that highlights their gorgeous fuschia color. We believe these to have been made between the 1980s and 90s. They are signed Maya Neiman's and are set in 22k yellow gold with 18k posts and omega backings for pierced ears. The posts can be easily removed for unpierced ears upon request. They measure 5/8 inch wide and 7/8 inch long.
