If you are after the best quality ruby then it has to be one from Burma (Myanmar). Burmese rubies are well regarded as the best rubies in the world and here is a stunning Burmese ruby and diamond cluster ring.
In recent years, many rubies have come on the market that are glass filled or lead filled, which is a technique to improve the colour and clarity of a ruby. However these rubies are unstable and can easily crack in a few years so it is always much better to get a ruby that has not been treated in this way such as in this ring.
Set in 18ct yellow gold, the oval ruby measures 0.64 carats and is surrounded by 16 round brilliant cut diamonds. Then to highlight the ring and ruby even more, there are a further 4 diamonds set on each side down the band.
Cluster designs are always so popular and are also easily suited as engagement rings and this one will always look superb no matter which finger it is worn on. From left to right, the cluster itself measures 8.5mm wide by 10mm and is in wonderful proportion to the band.
This ruby and diamond cluster is just perfect and will always be loved and admired.
