Product description

Rubies are among the world's most popular and highly sought-after gemstones, often associated with passion, romance, and power due to their rich, vibrant red color. Not only are they considered one of the four primary precious gemstones—alongside diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds—but rubies are also cherished for their hardness, durability, and rarity. They are a traditional gift for those celebrating 15th or 40th anniversaries and are July's birthstone.
The ruby described here is a fine specimen with multiple features that contribute to its desirability. At 1.66 carats, this oval-shaped ruby strikes a balance between a significant presence and a size that remains delicate enough for a variety of jewelry settings. Its dimensions of 7.89 x 5.80 x 4.27 mm make it a substantial centerpiece without being overly ostentatious.
Crafted with a mixed brilliant cut, the ruby has been specifically faceted to enhance its natural brilliance and to showcase the stone's intense hue and light-refractive properties. With a very slightly included clarity grade, imperfections are minor and do not detract from the stone's beauty when observed with the naked eye. This level of clarity is commendable for rubies, which often contain inclusions due to their natural formation process.
The ruby exhibits an intense color intensity, which is a highly sought-after quality in gemstones. Intense coloration suggests a deep, saturated red that exudes luxury and elegance. An excellent polish on the ruby implies that the stone has a smooth and reflective surface, allowing for optimal light performance, which enhances its overall visual impact.
Originating from Mozambique, this ruby comes from a region known for producing high-quality stones with a reputation that has been steadily increasing in the gemstone market. Mozambique rubies are particularly prized for their vibrant colors and clarity, making them competitive in the global market.
When imagining a pair of intricately designed earrings featuring such a ruby, one can envision a design that complements the stone's natural beauty. Picture the 1.66-carat ruby set in a halo of delicate diamonds to create contrast and magnify its fiery red. The earrings might be crafted from a high-purity platinum or white gold to offer a modern yet timeless appeal, with the metalwork showcasing artisanal skill through intricate filigree or engraving that adds to the piece’s exclusivity and charm.
The design might include sophisticated features such as a secure locking mechanism, ensuring that the earrings remain safely in place while worn. Imaginative craftsmanship could be seen in the way the metal is shaped to allow maximum light to penetrate and interact with the rubies, boosting their brilliance and color intensity. Overall, the earrings would embody luxury, with the rubies as the centerpiece of an elegant and complex design that attracts the eye and complements the wearer's grace and poise.
