22kt Gold & Ruby Earrings, India
A stunning pair of 22kt and cabochon ruby stud earrings. The swirl design is reminiscent of the paisley, a popular Indian motif borrowed from textile patterns and block prints. The symbolic meaning of the paisley is taken from its shape, likened to a mango, the sweetest of fruits and thus representing "auspiciousness and the fulfillment of 'legitimate' worldly desires."
