This is glowing ruby has beautiful color and wonderful luster. This wonderful ruby is a rectangular cut..The gemstone tests as a ruby on a Presidium Gem Tester and a reflectometer and is most likely a very high quality lab grown ruby. The gemstone has not been removed from the setting for testing so we cannot say it is a natural ruby as it is most likely a very high quality lab grown ruby. A Lab Grown Ruby has the exact same physical, optical, and chemical properties of a Natural Ruby meaning it is as hard and scratch resistant. This Ruby is in PERFECT PRISTINE CONDITION free of any chips, nicks, cracks, or scratches. The shoulders of the setting have great fluted column details. This beautiful ruby is held securely by a complete bezel setting. The dark areas on the gold in the photos are not blemishes but shadows and reflections due to the difficulty in photographing the highly polished gold. This ring is fully hallmarked "10k" and tests as and is guaranteed to be 10k solid gold. (Again this ring is guaranteed to be Solid Gold not plated or layered) This ring is in MINT PERFECT PRISTINE CONDITION and will arrive ready to wear.

The wide measurement is the width of the ring from outside to outside at the widest point when looking at the ring from the top.
The rise from the finger measurement is the height of the ring from the finger to the peak of the gemstone when worn. In the final photo the tick marks on the L-Square are 1 millimeter apart.
