This high-quality lab-created ruby features rose-cut faceting on the top and bottom of the stone. The stone is designed to partner with our Wrap-Tite® components to create eye-catching earrings, charms and pendants. Use the stone by itself for simple designs, or highlight the saturated color by pairing it with contrasting-color stones for a multicolor look. Ruby is the birthstone for July.
Lab-created ruby is made with corundum using the flame fusion method. Each stone has a chemical make-up identical to those found in nature. It performs at the bench just as a natural stone would. The color produced is a deep red that makes a dependable, affordable and popular choice in place of natural ruby gemstones.
A favorite of yesteryear, rose-cut faceting features a crown made up of triangular facets symmetrically arranged in a circle and rising to form a point at the center. The double rose-cut offers a crown of triangular facets on both sides of the stone. Rio round gemstones are calibrated for size and hand inspected to ensure maximum attractiveness.
