A Ruby Cabochon Diamond ring that makes you understand why rubies are called the king of gems! In fact, the Sanskrit word ratnaraj for ruby means king of gems. In addition, ruby (along with sapphire) is the hardest colored gemstone, and they rank just below diamonds. Therefore, ruby is an excellent choice for a wedding ring.
Deeply saturated in color, this 4.63 ct. ruby cabochon glows. Cabochon refers to the smooth dome-like cut that gives this ring a distinctive and exotic feel. As you can see from the photographer’s reflection in this photo, the ruby has a very clean and highly reflective quality. It’s a stunning ruby!
Masterfully crafted in 18K white gold with about 2/3 carat (.68 ct.) high-quality diamonds.
