Dainty Trapiche Ruby & Diamond 18ct Gold Pendant
Extremely rare, this material originates from a newly discovered mine in Southern India, but the supply is limited and when its gone, it’s gone! These pieces are from Adam’s friend Ashok’s private collection. Similar to a star ruby, this gem displays a 6-sectioned ray effect: Trapiche is the Spanish word for a spoked wheel. However, in star rubies the rays glide over the surface of the stone according to the light, whereas in a trapiche ruby the pattern is fixed and visible all the time.
