Sterling silver, Star Ruby

This is a classic wide band ring with a natural, untreated star ruby bezel set with solid sterling silver.

The band is a USA size 9. The ruby is 5.5 mm x 5 mm.
The width of the band at the top is 12 mm wide graduating to 5 mm wide at the bottom of the ring. The ring features a robust, 1.5mm thick sterling silver band which is smooth internally and rounded externally for a comfortable fit and finish.

This ruby comes from Karnataka, India. It displays a bright 6 pointed star in direct light.

Star ruby is a rare variety of ruby that exhibits asterism; a six-rayed star that shimmers over the surface of the stone when it is moved. The star effect is owed to aligned needle-like rutile inclusions.

I purchased this ruby during a gem buying trip in India in March 2016. At this time Ruby was difficult to access due to the lack of raw materials available to the cutters.

Ruby trivia and folklore

Did you know that Ruby and Sapphire are scientifically the same stone in different colors. Both stones are known as "corundum" however Ruby is classified as the red form of gem-quality corundum; all other color varieties of corundum are referred to as sapphire. Corundum is the second hardest mineral known, with a hardness rating of nine on the Mohs scale rivaled in hardness only by diamond.

For thousands of years, Ruby was considered the stone of love, energy, passion, power, creativity and represented a zest for life.

Rubies throughout time have been said to have many positive effects and mystical properties. The ruby is associated with the sun, and was thought to preserve mental and physical health. In some cultures, rubies are viewed as a stone of prophecy.

FAQs

Unfortunately I'm unable to accept custom orders or resizing requests at this time.
The best way to keep silver looking bright is to use a dry silver polishing cloth. This not only eliminates cleanup of wet polishing compounds but also ensures that your stone does not become damaged in the process. Never use ultrasonic cleaners on natural stones.
Unfortunately I cannot offer to resize rings. Close fitting sizes can usually be refit inexpensively with a local jeweler in your area.
Our orders are sent discrete and with enough protection to keep it safe in its journey without adding unnecessary costs to shipping.
We are happy to include a personalized note in your order although gift wrapping is not available.
