A ruby has always been a bucket list item for me so I’ve always kept an eye out. There were times I was tossed up between a cluster or a 3 stone with oec sides but my heart really wanted a true antique piece and that’s probably why I never pulled the trigger on a few beautiful loose rubies over the years.
Well, a friend found this stunning ring for me last year but the timing wasn’t right....then a couple of weeks ago I was browsing and came across it again not even realizing it was the same piece! My heart stopped and I knew I had to have it! The rest is history as I just received her on Monday and truly couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her in person. She makes my jaw drop and my heart flutter every time I put her on!
She’s a certified 2+ carat ruby - truly vivid red and hard to capture - with 1.25cts of delicious, bright, whiteeeee oecs in the cluster! Gahhh still can’t believe she’s mine!!!

Oh my word, how FABULOUS!! Definitely fate - it was meant to be. My grandmother used to say that our jewellery chooses us & not us who choose it. This is absolutely true for this stunning ruby!
