Rubies are among the most precious gemstones in the world. Really first-class rubies are only found in a few places on earth. Especially famous are the mines of the city of Mogok in Mynanmar. The best stones from this site are characterized by a particularly intense red color. It is possible to improve the color of rubies by heating them, some stones found in the trade are even filled with red lead glass to make them appear more intense. However, these treatments have a significant impact on the value of the rubies and only truly natural, untreated stones are stable value gemstones. Therefore, we are very pleased to offer a wonderful ruby in intense raspberry red in this here ring. The stone is natural and untreated, and thrills with a weight of about three-quarters of a carat. To be sure that this is a natural, untreated ruby, we had a laboratory examination done in Idar-Oberstein. So the delivery of the piece comes with an expert opinion. Forged from high karat white gold, the ring presents the ruby oval faceted and held securely by eight fine pommels. A total of 16 brilliant-cut diamonds of the best color and clarity (G, if-vvsi) accompany the wonderful center stone. The shape of the goldsmith's work forms a star and so the ring shines in a double sense.
