A note on production time..... Please read my current production time on this custom piece prior to purchasing- Any other information you read below on production time should be disregarded- current production times have changed. If this is a 'ready to ship' item, production times do not apply.

This ring in the photos is sold. The pictures are used to give you an idea of how your ring will appear when complete. Your ring will be made to order, to your specifications. Please see my shop announcement for my current production time.

The ring is built around an untreated (no heat treatment, no glass filling) star ruby. These rubies all have a remarkable, sharp six-pointed star, which I have not been able to catch in my photos. The ruby in the photos is 7.8 x 6.6 x 5.25mm, to give you an idea of scale. This ruby was a dark maroon colour. The available stones are pink, except the Indian ruby, Ruby C; this one is more of a deep pink-red. My dealer has many other star rubies- get in touch if you don't see one you like here.

You may choose 14k or 18k recycled gold for your ring. I can make it in white, rose, or yellow gold. It is possible to have any band texture you would like, or to have the granulation (metal balls) left out of the design. As the ring is made by me, in my studio, it is completely customizable.

You may choose your ruby from the final photo. They include:

A: 1.95 carats, 7 x 6 x 4.5, John Saul Mine, Kenya, Africa
B: .89 carats, 6 x 4.5 x 3, Quy Chau Mine, Vietnam
C: 4.83 carats, 9 x 8 x 5.5, India
D: 2.4 carats, 8 x 6 x 4.5, John Saul Mine, Kenya, Africa

Please note that the gorgeous, translucent pink Vietnamese ruby (Ruby B) has a surface divot to one side- this is not damage, but rather, is a natural part of the ruby's formation.

I have flanked this gorgeous ruby with two raw, conflict-free diamonds. The diamonds appear silver in the photos, but are a translucent, icy white when seen in better light. As with all of my diamonds, these stones are certified conflict-free.

Want a gorgeous, untreated, cornflower blue Ceylon star sapphire? Check out this listing:

You may also choose to have your ruby set as a solitaire, as seen in the sapphire ring in the above listing- please get in touch for pricing.

I created heavy, textural bezels to encase the diamonds and the ruby. The bezel lips have a linear hammered finish, while the bezel walls are brushed to a glittery glow. If you wish to have high-shine lips on your bezels, please let me know.

The metal in this ring is recycled gold. On the ring in the photos, the gold is 14k rose. I gave the band a hand-hammered finish, and then put a final, glittery brushed texture on the entire ring. Please let me know your choice of gold- rose, yellow, or white- in the 'note to shop' box during checkout.

This ring is incredible! I wanted to post my own photo of it but my camera doesn't do it any justice, so I'll let Laura's photos speak for themselves. I have been wearing this every day since it arrived, and can't stop looking at it! The emerald obviously is an impressive deep and dark beauty, but the diamonds that flank it are spectacular as well and there's always something new to discover here. Laura built the ring expertly, patiently, and lovingly by hand, updating me on the progress and staying open to input from me (though of course I always relied on her expertise and keen eye). She is the sweetest person you can imagine and is committed to getting everything absolutely right, no effort is too much. I could not be any happier with this stunning ring and will cherish it forever. As always, thank you, Laura!!

This is hands down the most beautiful ring I have ever owned. The sapphire is stunning and just absolutely perfect, the rose gold has the prettiest tone and texture, and the band and prong-setting Laura created from it are unbelievably beautiful - this is a piece of art created by a true master goldsmith. I could not be happier! If you go to the listing, the ring she made for me is actually showcased in the first three photos, and it's just as spectacular as the photos indicate. It is also incredibly comfortable to wear, very smooth and the band's width is perfect. I slipped this onto my finger and it felt as if this one had been mine forever - and it's not going to come off for a very long time : ) Thank you, Laura. I am sure I will be back for many more!!

I love, love, love my ring. I purchased another ring previously from Laura. I was so happy with the process and the ring that I decided I wanted Laura to create something special for me for my thirtieth anniversary - and she delivered. The pictures don’t really do it justice. During the process she kept me informed and worked with me. At one point I thought about asking for more granulation but then I decided to rely on her artist’s eye and just go with what she created. I am so glad I listened to my instinct. The ring is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier.

I purchased this sweet ring, along with a custom matching band, for my 67th birthday (it was a gift from my husband). I love the sparkle of the stone, and the texture on the band and the edges is just outstanding. Laura was wonderful to work with, ensuring every step in the process was complete and satisfactory. They fit like a dream and are so lovely. Thank you, Laura! It's perfect!
