Ruby and Diamond Engagement Ring

Ruby Breathless!



We have made several variations of our  Breathless rings  featuring fancy colored diamonds.  We wondered how a ruby or sapphire would look featured in this design.  The result is an elegant engagement ring set with a fiery red ruby accented by two trapezoid-cut diamonds.

The emerald-cut ruby and the step-cut diamonds give the ring an elegant geometry that is reminiscent of jewels from the Art Deco era.

We hand-crafted the ring in platinum to accent the vibrant red of the ruby and the cool geometry of the trapezoid-cut diamonds.  The band of the ring is fashioned from half round platinum wire that sweeps upward and narrows as it approaches the side diamonds.

Each of the gemstones is set in rounded platinum prongs that taper in width from top to bottom,  creating a graceful setting.  The ruby is set slightly higher than the trap diamonds,  so that the gemstones flow smoothly across the top of the ring.

Note the thickness of the ring's band and the strength of the settings.  This ring was made to be an heirloom that will be passed from generation to generation.

The inside of a beautiful ring should be as nicely finished as the top.  Note the smooth,  even cut-outs beneath each gemstone,  the seamless transition from the settings to the band,  and the slight taper of the band as it approaches the side diamonds.

The emerald-cut ruby weighs  1.64 carats and is a rich red color.  The two trapezoid-cut diamonds weigh a total of  0.47 carat.  They are E-F color and have VVS2-VS1 clarity grades.  The ring fits a size 6 1/2 finger,  but can be resized to fit most fingers.


Gemstone Note:


It is common practice for gem cutters to heat rubies to improve their color and appearance.  You should assume that all rubies have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe the ruby set in this ring has been heat treated.
