The Sunrise Ruby earrings, the most romantic pair of earrings ever! Layers of meaning.

 3D printed, cast in 18K white gold, 9.17ct star ruby, unheated, (Gemmological Institute of India certificate).


In the early morning hour,

Just before dawn, lover and beloved wake.

She asks, “Do you love me or yourself more?

Really, tell the absolute truth.”

He says, “There’s nothing left of me.

I’m like a ruby held up to the sunrise.

Is it still a stone, or a world

made of redness? It has no resistance

to sunlight.”

The ruby and the sunrise are one.

Completely become…

and wear this sun-ruby as an earring.
