Each earring has twenty nine rubies and five moonstones set in 18 carat white gold.
"These are amongst my favourite earrings and I wear than more than most others. The drop is long enough to be really striking but not so long that you can't wear them during the day. They really punch way above their weight in terms of style and value, and I frequently wear them informally, but have even worn them formally. For instance, I wore them some years ago to the dinner dance following my niece's wedding in the United States. They were the perfect complement to a spectacular, partially beaded aubergine slipper satin strapless gown (with matching bolero) made specially for me by the late couturier Christopher Lynch. I then highlighted the whole with La Stupenda, to create a look of sparkling luxuriousness. Usually, however, I wear these earrings informally or semi-formally," Lady Colin Campbell says.
A similar pair of earrings with the same quantity of similarly sized and quality rubies and moonstones set in 18 carat white gold starts at £2,350.
