This is a fabulous 18k solid gold ring with a classic bright red ruby. The design is based on an ancient Etruscan style with intricate twisted wire details. This ring is an extraordinary piece with an extremely rare and valuable natural ruby.
The ruby comes from the Winza mine in Tanzania and is completely natural (unheated). It has saturated red color and is super bright even in subdued light with excellent clarity. There are no visible imperfections which is uncommon for natural untreated ruby. The photos in this listing show the ruby to be a little pinker than it is in reality. It is really a deep ruby red color throughout.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/8” wide (at the front) and the band is approx. 1/8” wide at the back.
