I was inspired by @Niffler75 to get a lab ruby a while ago. This was custom cut for me by Ian Robinson of http://precisioncutgems.co.uk/. It's 7.2mm round in chrysanthemum cut. He seems to have a lot of synthetic stones rather than earth mined.

I bought a silver CZ setting off Etsy which took forever to arrive, and today I set the stone. It was for a 7mm stone but I managed to get it to fit. The ring comes with a matching fitted eternity band.

I think I found him from looking at lab rubies on eBay. When he didn't have the shape I wanted I just contacted him via his website.

Here is a close up with my macro lens. Had to get the DSLR out for this. It's getting dark here but this is outdoor light.
