This natural Trapiche Ruby has been claw set in polished 925 sterling silver, alongside a frame set, sparkling red Garnet. The clever design of the wrap band means that the ring can span ring sizes J-O (UK) or 5-7 (US). Ruby measures 15x14mm. Garnet measures 8x6mm. Total ring height is 34mm. Completely natural - the ruby gemstone has not been colour enhanced, glass filled, heat treated or modified in any way other than being buffed to a polish. Comes presented in a Two Skies jewellery box, ready for gifting.
Trapiche Ruby & Garnet Sterling Silver Ring
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.
