This Sterling Silver earring and pendant set features three 6mm round faceted natural Black Spinel gemstones from Sri Lanka with a beautiful glossy black color. Spinel was referred to as the “Balas Ruby” as the variety of Spinel found in the Badakhan region of Afghanistan were a red-pink color and were traded and used in jewelry as rubies. In fact, the Black Prince’s Ruby and the Timor Ruby are actually Spinel gemstones (the Timor is now owned by Queen Elizabeth). The Black Spinel is said to be protective and aid in resolving issues in ones life. This rare stone is among quite a few in our line you would be hard pressed to find set in jewelry anywhere else.
Total Carat Weight of the gemstones in the jewelry of this set is on average 2.10 cts.
6mm is equivalent to 1/4″ in standard measurement, and is about the size of a pencil eraser.
Made proudly in the USA, we hand set our entire line of jewelry in stamped and guaranteed .925 Sterling Silver. Don’t ever buy jewelry online from a dealer that doesn’t show a close up picture of the stamp proving the quality of the metal, like we do.
The earrings feature thick posts, 6 prongs to hold the stone and high quality backings to ensure they’ll stand the test of time for years of beautiful wear. The pendant is constructed of a heavyweight amount of Sterling Silver to ensure it lays flat on the chest, and for maximum stone security. The necklace is a high quality 18″ Sterling Silver chain with a heavy duty lobster style clasp. The 8-sided “snake” type configuration of the chain eliminates the annoying kinking that can occur in cable type chains.
Your earrings and necklace set will arrive in our soft and stylish Swanky925 brand cotton linen pouch.
