    I thought this must be the case - that ruby is too perfect to find online without some great connections! I can't wait to see what you do with it.

    I think I might do this with it (it’s my yellow diamond and asscher open band). I have a ruby of similar hue and make a split band ring with both rubies facing each other. What do you think?

    Can you snap a pic of the 2 rubies together? Are they the same shape/cut? I would worry that one might out-shine the other is all.

    It’s hard to tell from this photo as I was unable to use natural light, but they are a similar colour. And shape.

    In the split ring I have, one is a yellow cushion and the other is a white asscher, and it works.

    I feel like the current ring you have works well because the two stones are purposefully mismatched. While both of your rubies are beautiful *cough send me one*, I think together one will always look "not as nice" as the other. I think if you're going to do the double-stone setting again, I'd get a completely different stone to go with it.

    Yeah - you are probably correct. I have another emerald (see the photo of the under stone next to my other ring) but I fear it’s maybe too large to be set opposite the ruby?

    Or maybe this setting would be better?

    The red and green reads a bit Christmassy anyway .I'm a fan of red and yellow...and red and white is always safe. Red and grey would be really nice too.

    Wow - you give me a run for my money!

    My favourite is the orange (love a shield-type cut) and the Burmese spinel. That colour is insane!

    here are pics of the before and after the setting change.
    The chevron/ V claw setting accentuate the corners of the princess more. and i think, it enhances the stone ie making them look bigger. The previous setting is typical of a basket with normal "button" prong setting.
    afters before.

    So I made a album of 140 rings I have found while searching online. See this link:
    https://imgur.com/a/ScL8Y3y


    Some are from this form but many are not. Hope this helps others with inspiration.
    If some mod thinks its a good idea to drop 140 images here on this board I can do it but I though it was better as an external link.

    That is striking!

    Did you have it custom-designed?

    I like it :))

    Hi, yes it’s a custom made. As it involves pave diamonds settings and an unusual shape of the sapphire, I keep emphasising to the setter to keep it as masculine as much as possible :D

    Love it! Is that a fancy light yellow? I love how the shape looks almost like a cushion but is more rounded?
