Ladies Ring Ruby (Recrystallized) 80-370 1.42 ct

Current stock: 0


This is a fine recrystallized ruby which we are the exclusive makers of! The raw ruby came from Burma in the form of very small pieces too small to facet. We placed 1,000 grams of the pieces into an Iridium cup> (Iridium is sort of like Platinum, except it had a higher melting point, and is much less chemically reactive...and way more expensive!) Then we turned up the heat to about 3,500˙F, the little pieces of ruby melted, and then we very sloooooowly cooled it and a couple weeks later we had a big block of 'frozen' ruby. We cut the block up with diamond saw into pieces small enough to facet and that is what the gem in this ring (and others) is made from. So, I guess the gem has all the same properties of mined ruby. No worse!...JUST A WHOLE LOT LESS EXPENSIVE!!!!!!! By the way....we are truly the ONLY company that does this, or has ever done this!!
A nice color, well faceted Recrystallized Ruby in a solid 14Kt Yellow Gold ring. 1.42 carats. All of our exclusive recrystallized Ruby has the same physical and chemical properties as a mined ruby. Ruby is the 2nd hardest gem (right after diamond) so these gems last nearly as long as a diamond. Since a diamond lasts forever, do these last just a minute or so less?
