Description

Some diamond halos have a regal bearing, such as the one fashioned around this gorgeous ruby ring. It all comes down to design decisions and subtle details—overall halo shape, prong placement, number of diamonds, relationship to the center stone, and on and on. Spectra Fine Jewelry has made superlative design decisions in this Oval Ruby and Diamond Ring, created in the 21st century, 2018. It is not an exaggeration to say that the diamond halo is the ring’s crowning glory. Crafted in 18K white gold, the ring features an oval faceted red ruby with an estimated weight of 12.63 carats, surrounded with an oval-shaped halo comprised of 20 round brilliant-cut white diamonds. The band is embellished with white pavé diamonds which graduate smaller to larger partway around the band, creating dynamic movement in the opposite direction of what we would expect, another dazzling design decision contributing to the whole.

But back to the oval-shaped diamond halo. Does it bring to mind a famous regal ring? Princess Diana’s 12-carat oval sapphire engagement ring, now worn by her daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton, the current Princess of Wales, is arguably the most photographed royal engagement ring. Known as the Marguerite Ring, it is likewise encircled in diamonds set in 18K white gold. In both rings, single prongs punctuate the outer curve of each round diamond , causing each stone to appear pear-shaped. It is such a lovely detail that transforms the look of the halo, and makes it regal by association. The elegant overall proportions between the two rings are quite similar too, with the size of this ruby at an estimated 12.63 carats just a bit larger than Diana’s 12-carat sapphire. The oval shape is most flattering in both cases, creating a lengthening look on the finger. The halo on our ruby ring is set to maximum dazzle, with each diamond’s sparkle reflected in the mirror polished 18K white gold bezel that holds the ruby. The stone is set in the cool metal, save for 4 talon prongs in 18K yellow gold which hold the stone. The shape and color of the prongs provide an added dash of luxury to the overall look. Talon claws or prongs are crafted based on the appearance of the talons of a bird of prey. They add a certain flair as they are typically used for large gemstones.

Ruby gemstones have been revered since ancient times, once thought to provide protection around 200 BCE when Chinese noblemen adorned their armor with rubies along China’s North Silk Road. Later, ruby became one of the most sought-after gems of European royalty and the upper classes. Many medieval Europeans wore rubies to guarantee health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love. In modern times, ruby is associated with romance, love, and passion. Ruby, which is the red member of the corundum family which also includes sapphire, is often given as a gift to show the strength of one's relationship. As such, this standout colorful jewel would be equally stunning as a cocktail ring, engagement ring, or celebration ring.

Size US 6, can be resized. Center oval ruby weight approx. 12.63 carats. The ring is set in 18K white gold. Circa 21st Century.
