This is a pair of calibrated (that is will fit a commercial setting for this size and shape of stone) rich red 5mm round faceted Mahaleo rubies. Together they weigh 1.1 carats. They are very close to exactly 5mm in diameter, although I note that one is ever so slightly less round than the other. It would not be noticed in a setting.

What are they? Rubies from Madagascar have lovely color and are often quite transparent except that (for reason known only to Nature) they typically have what gemologists call feathers, which is a nice term meaning breaks within the structure of the gemstone. In the last few years a method of fracture filling was developed which could be applied to these rubies, such that they could be safely cut and polished for use in jewelry. To the eye, these enhanced natural rubies have the color and clarity of much more expensive stones....and they don't have that "red glass" look of synthetic lab rubies, nor are they the opaque red of Indian rubies. The only caveat is, these are better used in earrings and pendants than in rings, as they may still be more susceptible to breakage than a flawless ruby would be...and don't expose them to heavy duty sonication cleaning for the same reason.

Make a pair of stud earrings with these lovely red rubies, and enjoy the expensive look at a bargain price. Return them if you don't love them.

Will ship first class mail with tracking. Additional purchases ship free in the same parcel. Thanks for looking!

Gems and Jewelry can no longer be shipped to Great Britain! I think this is a British Customs regulation, and I do not yet know about restrictions for other countries.
