Beginning with ruby accessories, the colour has been an integral and distinguished part of bridal wear for centuries, crossing the cultural divides and forever synonymous with love.
You simply couldn’t have a ruby themed wedding reception without including a ruby jewel to dazzle and amaze. Amrapali Jewels, emerging from the Mughal splendour of Jaipur, they have since become globally recognised as purveyors of luxury jewellery design, with unprecedented style and grace.
This pair of stunning earnings, which mix diamonds, rubies and pearls, would be a fine addition to a brides outfit, although of course brimming with regal tones, they also offer a bride a sense subtlety, rather than being overwhelming.
