3.58 Carat Fine Burmese Ruby in Custom Platinum and Diamond Mounting
An antique Burmese ruby (3.58 ct) is set in platinum and accompanied by diamonds. Size 6.5.
A truly fine and almost impossible to find high quality ruby came to me in an uninteresting 80's mounting. I copied a Deco mounting I once had as the perfect frame for this stone.
Fine rubies rarely are found in a size this large. Unlike other precious stones, a gem quality ruby over three carats is rare.
The mounting is hand made using the same techniques the master jewelers of the Deco era used. The side 'bullet' diamonds have to be custom cut for this mounting.
Rubies are also extremely difficult to photograph and have the true color represented. The stone is twice as beautiful as it appears here.
This ring would make a spectacular engagement or anniversary gift.
We only have one ruby like this but we can reproduce the mounting...it works best with a rectangular cut stone..emerald or radiant 1.5ct or larger.
