A pair of Italian late-20th century 18 karat gold earrings with rubies and diamonds by Bulgari. Both the elegantly petite tops and the substantial drops of these earrings feature a hexagonal ruby of exceptional color framed by two plaques of brilliant-cut diamonds. The two major segments of the earring are joined by a stylized curb link also accented with white brilliant-cut diamonds, beautifully marrying the three design elements of the piece. The 2 larger rubies have the approximate total weight of 5.00 carats and the 2 smaller rubies have the approximate total weight 1.70 carats. The 90 round-cut diamonds have the approximate total weight of 1.60 carats.
