I dont often go for synthetic or lab grown stones but the juicieness of this lab grown ruby was too hard to resist.
The oval stone used here measures 15 mm by 10 mm or just over 1/2 by 3/8 inches.
This ring is a size 5 1/2 but can be sized from a 4 to a 7.
PLEASE CONTACT ME ABOVE WITH YOUR FINGER SIZE
Ruby is a type of Corundum.
Corundum is the second hardest mineral and occurs as white, gray, dull blue or dull red crystals. However, a very small amount of corundum has a transparency, purity and color that make it suitable for use as a gemstone.
Some gem-quality corundum has trace amounts of chromium. A very small amount of chromium gives corundum a pink color and larger amounts produces stones that are deep red. Ruby is a deep red corundum. Transparent rubies are cut into faceted stones and translucent rubies are cut into cabochon-shaped gemstones.
