|Huge rubies captured on safari These are not an everyday earrings. Thats because its not every day we find a cache of genuine African rubies this gorgeous. While the impressive size and even more impressive price werent typical, the quality was everything weve come to expect. Thats because some of the finest rubies in history have come out of Africa. And thats no surprise, considering the legendary lost mines of King Solomon are rumored to be somewhere on the continent. In 1949, an English prospector unearthed the fabled treasure trove, or so he thought. After months wandering the African bush he came across a basin littered with enormous rubies. Overwhelmed with excitement, he quickly set up camp. But he wasnt the only one who held claim to the land. Miners often have to deal with rivals, but his problem was bigger, literally. Each day, miners would drive to the site, and each day they found the road blocked by fallen trees. Apparently, the local elephant herd was intent on keeping the miners away from their rubies. Lucky for you (and for us), we were able to avoid any wild animals to bring you these Sheba Natural Ruby Earrings. Adorned with deep red, faceted natural rubies, these pieces are bound to attract some jealous glances. Each radiant natural gemstone has been meticulously set into an ornate .925 sterling silver frame.
