The color is perfect and I love the story that it was the one that got away.. and then it wasn't.
A true happy ending.:D
I was hoping you saw this since I’ve always loved and admired your stunning heart ruby and Tiffany ruby pieces!!! Is there such a thing as too many rubies??? Neverrrrr!!!!

oh, I'm envious; it's beautiful! I also have an antique ruby ring on my jewelry bucket list, but haven't found the right one yet... or at least not the right one at the right price.

It's absolutely amazing, honestly. That is a stunning ruby, and exactly the colour I imagine a ruby to be.

I was wondering what was documented about the colour and saturation of this ruby and whether it has any modifiers or not?

Does it fluoresce?

What do you know about the OECs? I think there's something so perfect about OECs and ruby together, especially slightly larger OECs.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Yup this was my exact dilemma as well! I won’t lie, DH definitely had sticker shock but I just couldn’t pass it up for the second time. Could I have recreated it for less? Maybe, but would it have been perfect? Could I have gotten a ‘better’ or unheated ruby, yes, but it would’ve been much smaller. This one must’ve presented itself again for a reason...or so I like to think! :halo:

This is all the info on the GIA origin report. I’m debating whether I want to send it in to AGL for additional analysis (which I did with my emerald but that wasn’t certed at all). If and when I find out more, I’d be happy to let you know!
The OECs are roughly .11 points each, G color VS clarity-chunky, white and delicious!

Really a wonderful ruby! That's a very neat story as well- was meant to be!

Gorgeous ring!!! :kiss2: The ruby is such a beautiful color and I love the setting, too! I have pictures saved with rings with shoulders like that! I'd love to find a ruby ring as pretty as yours one day! It's the perfect color to wear to celebrate the 4th this weekend!

I think sending it for a further report when it's already in a setting and would have to be unmounted would be a shame hey? I don't know how much risk to the setting that would be. Or I presume it has to be unmounted anyway.

That’s lovely, just as perfect as a ruby should be.

Absolutely gorgeous shoulders and gallery too

I’ll confess I approved a CAD two weeks ago that has a riff off of this style shoulder. Love it!

Thanks DS! I’m really SO in love with it and I’m happy to share with others who also appreciate her beauty! Between us, we’re ready for the 4th! I’ll bring the red, you bring the blue and since they both have the white we’re set! Hopefully one day! ::)

AGL offers 2 options of unmounted and mounted stones but I would call to verify that being mounted wouldn’t interfere with the full analysis if I wanted the prestige full grading report. Maybe one of the pros could comment on what would be best or if they think it’s beneficial if I already have a GIA report? @denverappraiser @Rockdiamond @Karl_K @oldminer

GORGEOUS! You have an incredible collection of rings! Enjoy!
Thank you! I feel like I’m finally curating my tastes and collection. When I was younger I would just impulsively buy what I liked and realized that wasn’t always long lasting. Now I’m trying to think about what I really like/want and take my time rather than rush into things!
