Vintage 14K Custom Design Apex Cut Ruby Ring
Where on earth to begin?
First - High, High-End Estate Ring. A HUGE Synthetic Ruby! Don't flinch when you hear synthetic. This means that chemically, physically (Specific Gravity), optically (Color, Refractive Index), by all measures - this gemstone is identical to earth-mined Ruby. This particular stone is from the best of the best of the best Synthetic Rubies and was priced dearly.
The setting. Completely custom made top to bottom, side to side. And custom made for this stone! We think they did an exquisite job. The simplicity of the single Acanthus Leaf accent is nothing less than understated elegance. The focus of this design was to most fully provide exposure of the beautiful gem.
The cut. A most unusual Apex or Pinwheel Cut was applied to the Crown. For a large, large stone such as this it refracts and reflects best.
The Stone. Huge! It measures 16.75mm x 8.8mm and has a conservative estimated weight of 13 Carats.
Stunning. This absolutely gorgeous ring is a size 6.25 (6 1/4) and has a weight of 7.56 grams. One of a kind.
