Back in December I spotted a ruby trilogy for sale but hesitated on it and it sold. Well it must have gotten returned because it popped back up this month. I’ve been looking for a ruby ring, has to be a certain color though and so the hunt has been challenging. It’s probably not “ruby ideal” but it’s perfect for me.

This is the picture I picked it out of, it is second from the top middle finger.

These are the sellers pictures just so you can see the profile, they are better than my pictures:

It arrived today and the color is perfect but the ring itself is a bit small on my, healthy hands. I’m trying to figure out how to wear it, I feel like it needs to be with another ring so, this was the best I could come up with. Trying to do the ring justice while not looking out of proportion. Not sure either of these really work though.

Or

I really like it as a pinky ring but I lost a ring (in the garbage of all places but it was recovered) once while wearing it on my pinky so that’s out. Plus I think it’s too tall for a pinky ring, just for scale:

So you can see it’s small but so pretty, here are a couple more pics for the color and GLOW. Any suggestions on how to wear this? It’s at the jeweler being sized but they said I should have it back later today.

Pretty ring! I don’t quite like either of the stacks you posted, though between the two I think I like the one with the blue ring more. But imo both stacks seem to have your other ring overpower the Ruby ring!

I think I would basically stack with only bands or non graduated rings, like a 5 or 7 stone, and only in WG/plat and/or diamonds. Could you put together a stack like that from your existing collection? Feels like you should let the Ruby be the only pop of colour in your stack, so it stands out!

I actually do like the first stack, it's giving antique almost toi-et-moi vibes with the two different color stones. Alternatively I would probably stack two of the same chunky bands on either side of it. Maybe a couple engraved bands, or a couple diamond eternities.

@AllAboardTheBlingTrain, I appreciate the honesty because you can’t let me go out looking all crazy lol! Unfortunately I don’t have a five or seven stone band yet and I tried my diamond band with an engraved one but the shades are too different. So @Rfisher I did try that idea but it doesn’t work. @Mooshi, that’s kind of the look I was going for with the sapphire but still wasn’t really digging it.

Since I can’t combine the engraved bands with my diamond eternity because of the difference in metal colors, I tried some combos with my ruby eternity:

I love how you have it in the latest pic. Or like @Rfisher is suggesting, sandwiched between 2 thin bands. (Preferably thin diamond bands.)

Oh I love the top one in this post! That would be my winner. Ravishing red stack!!

Thanks @Star gazer and @AllAboardTheBlingTrain, I was afraid the ruby eternity would be too different of a shade but when I tried it, it works! Maybe down the line there will be a five stone band in the mix, that would be a nice wardrobe addition.

Thank you for the input!

I love both your ruby trilogy and your sapphire trilogy! :kiss2:

If it were me I would stack the ruby trilogy with a thin plain band of the same metal/color (if you have one) and then your ruby eternity band. Although I also like the photo @kgizo just posted!

Do you mind sharing where you bought the ruby trilogy? I like one of the other rings on that lady's fingers!

Listen.
You can't go wrong here, it looks good no matter what!
Another great selection!

It's very beautiful!
But I do like it with the ruby eternity.

I love the top combo as well!

Curious to see both of these 2 combos with the trilogy in the middle between the 2 bands.

Aw thanks @Star gazer, this is how I’ve been wearing it and it’s giving me some serious English rose vibes.

@Betty Baguette, believe it or not I don’t have a plain white gold band :wall: Maybe I’ll come across one in my travels. I would be happy to share the source if you don’t mind reaching out via LT. His prices are very good, he is UK based:


@stracci2000, thanks friend, hey maybe you will come across one, like when you found the same ruby band after I bought mine. Of course you’ll probably pay like $5 for an 18k ruby diamond ring because you have mad luck and skills like that ;)2

@oldcutclubmember, I’ll play jewelry and take some more pics on Monday, the weekends are a bit insane with work and kids. My youngest son already thinks I have too many rings so when he’s at school I don’t have to have a running commentary :lol:

I took this screenshot from a video, so it may not be the clearest. This was in the car, I’m just amazed that the color of the rubies between these two rings is so similar, like what are the chances?

These are perfect stacks and the color complements like they were made together. I like it with the sapphire 3 stone as well. It's the perfect stacker.

Thanks so much @ItsMainelyYou, I’m digging having some color in my wardrobe finally. It’s crazy how much vintage or antique ruby rings are fetching these days, luckily this one was on sale so it was a great price.

The combination is delicate and lovely but with a great pop of colour - it’s look wonderful

You are so sweet, I’m definitely embracing color more now than before and anytime I can find something with some old cuts, I’m all about it!

And this one just because ;-)

The difference in metal tone with these two bands doesn’t bug me nearly as much as I thought.
