We were asked to make a ring that "Mary, Queen of Scots would wear- or something that would be a Tudor family heirloom". After a whole pile of research, we chose to make this 18k yellow gold ring with a big, juicy ruby on top. The band has a perfect pattern of bead-set rubies, sixteen in total. To ease the visual transition, there are two bezel set rubies flanking the central gemstone. The central ruby is a genuine ruby- it has been treated with a technique called "fracture filling". (A non-treated ruby of this size would cost as much as a brand new car!). All of these rubies are much more red than appears in the photograph. This ring took days to make, between the layout and the bead setting. The end result is worth it. This ring exists and is ready for a forever home. It is a size 8 (not able to be sized) and is a showstopper of a piece.
