Stunning 3 Carat Ruby & Diamond Ring

This is a finely made ladies 14k white gold Ruby and Diamond ring weighing 4.1 grams. The ring contains one prong-set faceted oval cut natural mined Ruby as tested on GEM Refractometer, measured as set at approx. 9.5 x 7.5 x 4.5 and calculated to weigh approx. 2.5 carats. It would also make a very beautiful engagement ring.

The natural mined Ruby is cradled between eight (8ea) prong set .025 ct. round brilliant cut diamonds, mounted four to a side, with an additional ten (10 ea) prong set diamonds weighing approximately .03 ct ea and mounted five to a side in channels on the top half of the shank. Total diamond weight is approximately .50 cttw. Gemstone Clarity is SI, diamond color is G-H. Ring size is 6.25.

Total precious gemstone weight is 3 carats.

The overwhelming majority of rubies on the market today have undergone some type of clarity or color enhancement. This natural mined ruby is no exception, and our inspection indicates that any such enhancement beyond traditional heat treatment, would be described as minor. This is a very beautiful ring.

ABOUT RUBIES: A Ruby is a pink to blood-red colored gemstone, a variety of the mineral Corundum. The Ruby is considered one of only four gemstones which are classified as Precious. (i.e. - Diamond, Sapphire, Emerald and Ruby).

Prices of rubies having similar carat weight, cut and clarity, are primarily determined by the remaining characteristic, which is color.

There are a wide variety of hues, saturations, intensity, and tints of the color red.

In the world around us, we recognize subtle variations of the color red almost every day. For example, we often see Fire Engine Red, Candy Apple Red, Rose Red, Red Wine, Ferrari Red, red lipstick and red nail polish, to name only a few.

When it comes to Rubies, however, the brightest and most valuable color of red, is something known as Pigeon's Blood red, and it commands a large premium over other Rubies of similar quality.

In the jewelry industry, it is assumed that rubies have been heat treated unless otherwise specified. Other treatments are available to the jewelry industry such as fracture filling, oiling, etc. Rubies which have undergone NO enhancement of any kind are very rare, may cost in excess of $20,000 per carat, and are available upon request. If that is the caliber stone you seek, please let us know and we'll be happy to present you with photographs and prices.

In order for you to be able to accurately appreciate the color of this Ruby, for additional comparison purposes, we've paired two natural faceted oval cut Rubies with gowns of similar color and then placed them side by side.
