Dramatic and Sparkly, the contrast between the Ruby and the Diamonds makes this ring stunning. The classic design of the ring won't to go out of style and will be comfortable and easy to wear. The hardness of Ruby is exceeded only by Diamond, so the gemstone won't scratch easily.
Ruby, the most valuable of all colored gems, is traditionally mined in Southeast Asia, especially Burma and Thailand. The Thai source is no longer producing, so if you like the color of this good sized Thai Ruby, this is a good opportunity to own a rare gem. The rich slightly purplish red of the Thai Rudy reminds one of the wines of Burgundy.
Ruby is a gemstone where size really matters. Rubies of good quality that are above one carat are quite rare and expensive.
We love the softly rounded shape of this cushion mixed cut gem and the way it shows the rich ruby red.
