Many more coming soon - thanks for stopping by! This vibrant fuchsia ruby ring has a sturdy and high quality hand feel with wide band all the way around, a closed back and an applied bezel set with an oval cabochon ruby.
It has a lovely deep color that appears almost red to the eye but deep fuchsia pink in sunlight. This is a vintage piece that I acquired in Europe.
As such it is marked with their numerical hallmarking system, in this case 333 for 8k gold. While it is a lower carat, it is real gold so it won't show underlying metal over time.
It also has maker's mark initials inside the band. Size 8, the chunky band is 5mm wide by 1.5mm thick with a rounded top of solid gold. The ruby is about 6mm by 4mm.It weighs 4.4 grams so it has a nice heavy hand feel. All my estate pieces are preowned and in estate condition.
The stone is interesting as I can see quite a few inclusions like frosted or icy steaks in the stone. Also under magnification only is what looks like a tiny hairline scratch, smaller than a hair so I think it also may be an inclusion so please look for that in photos. None of this is visible to the eye whatsoever. It has a lovely deep pink to red color with a beautiful polish and glossy shine so it wears well.Surface wear to the gold band but still nicely shaped. It has a nice rosy patina.
This could likely be polished up brighter to make the band look more new but many of my buyers have told me they prefer the patina so I did not clean it. It presents really nicely with a great quality hand feel but due to age - please note this is not a mint condition item. I enjoy making my customers happy and matching unique pieces with new homes. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
It means a lot to me that you are visiting! Thanks so much for looking at my items!
