The rubellite is a variety of tourmaline that exhibits a strong pink/red color. Often this is mistaken for a ruby. This color is the most highly prized of the tourmalines and ofter the most expensive.
The drama of this ring on the hand is unsurpassed. The rubellite weighs 16 carats and its color is beyond comparison. The mounting is platinum and the rubellite is held by 4 strong prongs. Surrounding the major stone is a ring of clear white diamonds totaling 1 carat.
The ring will fit a size 7 finger but could easily be made larger or smaller. It sits 3/4 of an inch above the finger. The total weight of the ring is 1s 14.1 grams.
It is an outstanding jewel in wonderful condition.
