Diamond and Ruby Ring in Platinum

Round ruby ring in platinum.

Round Ruby Delight!

The phrase Ruby Red is epitomized in this exceptional ring.  The ruby in the center is as red as Dorothy's shoes from the Wizard of Oz.  On each side of the vibrant ruby is a smaller round brilliant cut diamond.

This ring is a variation on our  Sapphire Delight  design in which we feature an oval sapphire.  Three-stone rings like this are wonderful for any occasion and can be worn on either hand.  They are also ideal as engagement rings.

The band is crafted from a solid half round platinum wire with a high polished surface and even width.  The inside of the ring is also polished smooth.  The center ruby is set in 18kt yellow gold prongs while the two diamonds are set in platinum.

When you examine a three-stone ring you should pay close attention to the layout and settings of the gemstones.  The gems should be set closely together so that there are no unsightly gaps.  You want the gems to flow in a graceful line across the top of the ring.

In this ring,  the diamonds have been set slightly lower than the ruby.  This allows the gemstones to follow the natural curve of your finger.  Sometimes three-stone rings are made with all the gemstones set at the same height and with no curvature.  This is a Bijoux "No no!" It gives the ring an inelegant flat appearance .... not something you want to see on your finger.

Also note the thickness of the ring's band and its slightly tapered profile.  This assures that the ring will wear comfortably and last for many decades.

Inside of ruby ring in platinum.

A truly fine jewel will be as well made and beautifully finished on the underside as it is on the top.  The underside of this ring is meticulously crafted and finished.  The window-like cut-outs beneath the ruby and diamonds are smooth and symmetrical,  indicating the skill and care of a master platinumsmith.

Note the sturdiness and uniformity of the platinum and yellow gold prongs.  This style of setting is known as a "double-rung basket."  It gives the ring an open,  delicate appearance,  while securely holding and protecting the gemstones.

This view also shows that the prongs flare out slightly,  creating a graceful appearance.  It is these little touches that make this ring truly exceptional.

Gemstone Note:
It is common practice for gem cutters to heat rubies to improve the gemstone's color and appearance.  During the heating process,  small amounts of a glass-like material may fill small pits and fractures on the surface of the stone.  You should assume that a ruby has been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe that the ruby set in this ring has been heat treated.

Elegant three-stone rings can be created in a variety of styles,  precious metals and with the gemstones of your choice.  Perhaps a diamond, sapphire or emerald as the center stone.  Or maybe one of the exotic gems like tanzanite,  tsavorite garnet or one of the many flavors of spinel.  If you would like to discuss possible gemstones,  design options and costs,  please give us a call  (603 624-8672)  or  send us an email.

Rubies and sapphires are among our favorite gemstones.  Here are several more three-stone rings we recently created ....
