I cut the sterling silver circles for these ruby earrings from 22 gauge 925 silver. I tube-set the genuine ruby cabochons (July's birthstone) and added a pair of silver bars. I brush finished the silver disks to give them a frosted look and brought the small bars to a high polish as a contrast.
This pair of earrings would be perfect all day, every day jewelry. They measure 5/8 inches in diameter and weigh 1.6 grams each.
