JUST APPRAISED: $16,550.00 CAD ($12,560 USD)! VERY RARE RUBY!
Call the fire brigade - we've got a red-hot one here that's simply ON FIRE! Absolutely VIVID in color & saturation is this rare, certified 'unheated', heart-cut ruby & diamond ring. Valentine's might be long past, but this one will keep your heart a-flutter all year long!
To describe this gorgeous gem as anything other than spectacular would be a crime. Radiating from deep within is a red so pure with ever-so-subtle hints of purple that its color is that of crimson-blood-red: rich, heart-piercing, saturated glory. And to go along with that description is its color classification on its gem ID certificate: 'RED'. Not 'Purplish Red' or 'Orangy Red' or 'Pinkish Red' but pure 'RED'. Additionally, with its newly received appraisal, our gemologist has also graded the color as pure 'medium dark, strong RED (GIA R 6/5)'. With no secondary hue, the rarity of this ruby, along with its unheated status, makes it very special!
Certified by the AIGS (full report) as 'unheated' which means its color is 100% natural - not treated in any way to bring out that prized color, nor has its clarity been treated - this is truly a very special gem indeed! Weighing 1.35ct and measuring 6.78 x 5.88 x 4.57mm heart-shaped, the cut is also a rare feature, as rubies, especially those that are untreated are generally 'native cut' (oval or cushion, sometimes unevenly proportioned) in order to keep as much carat weight as possible. However, everyone knows that the finer the cut, the more brilliant the scintillation, and that's what you get here. The fire within this ruby is stunning - our best yet that we've ever had to offer - and that color puts this one up there with the finest! Additionally, this ruby is completely eye-clean: there are NO visible inclusions whatsoever, adding to the checklist of 'must haves'. The appraisal is proof of the value of this ruby.
While the ruby is set within 14kt yellow gold prongs, the main mounting is 14kt white gold, stamped on its shank as shown. The ring holds a total of 42 round-cut diamonds, 14 main diamonds surrounding the ruby in a heart-shape, and a further 28 tiny melee diamonds on the sides of the ring. Totaling 0.41ct combined, with G-H, and I-J-K color respectively and averaging I clarity, with 'good' cuts, these beauties add a snowflake-like sparkle to that amazing ruby!
Currently a US Size 7 and weighing 3.2 grams, the ring does not appear to have been ever sized, and with a skilled goldsmith, sizing up or down 1-2 sizes should not pose too much difficultly. Be sure to let your jeweler know the ruby is completely untreated before sizing if you must have the ring sized.
If collecting rare gems is your passion, why not add this color-of-passion ruby to your collection today? She's absolutely sensational & won't disappoint!
