22 Karat Yellow Gold Ruby, Diamond, and Pearl Stud Earring with Multi-Color Enamel Work
This elegant Mughal era hand-made blood red ruby and pearl earring is impressive. The top part of the earring is formed of special cut of pear shape flat checkered cut ruby in bezel gold setting adjoining each other creating a leaf design of the earring. The outer gold on the earring gallery is covered with a thin line of red enamel work, making the look more articulate.
The bottom half of the earring is formed by solitaire south sea pear drop pearls with two smaller pearls on the side and a bigger pearl in the center, held securely by a small gold cap on top and bottom. The top and bottom part are adjoined with a bezel set round polki diamond adjacent to the top and adjoining the pearl with a round loop for more movement of the pearl when worn.
The back of these meena earrings just like any other royal mughal pieces, is what differentiates and adds variety to these royal earring pieces. The earring back is fully enameled in green and red meena with floral and leaf engraving through the exposed thin yellow gold outlines with the white enamel covering the back of the earring. This kind of Meena/enamel form is also called “Do Rangi Meena,” of the classic green and red enamel work. It’s a very intricate work by the engraver, as there are no gold outlines and it’s a free-flow of direct meena work on the earring.
The solid 22k gold is purposely used in these enamel/meena pieces, as the meenakari shows the best on gold as it has a natural sheen that sets off the colours of Meenakari beautifully. It also holds the enamel better and adds shine to it. This royal and floral solitaire ruby and pearl earring is made to wear for special occasions.
