Finding a sapphire or a ruby is an art form itself even before it's ready to be faceted or cabbed. Unlike diamonds where 100 million carats are mined in an average year, with colored stones, it's just a tiny fraction of that. In fact, rubies are today still more valuable and rare than even the top quality colorless diamonds, and always will be, just from the simple fact that so few are available. This fascinating cabochon was mined in Kenya, cabbed and polished in Mumbai,India. Deep rich brick red in color with a superb luster, a ruby like this can not be described, to fully appreciate its beauty, one must see it.
All gemstones in our inventory and our jewelry are Natural mined gemstones, None are lab created,lab grown,man made, or synthetics.
