3.05 ct Red Oval Ruby
Beautiful ruby in classic oval shape and striking red colour. This gemstone would look amazing in yellow gold, especially if surrounded by a pair of diamonds to create a timeless three stone ring.
Rubies are increasingly being treated by filling with glass and stones. Rubies that have been treated in this way may contain a very large percentage of glass. If you become aware that you or a customer has such a ruby, avoid direct heat, acids, ultrasonic and steam cleaners, knocks and blows.
