This ring features a beautifully crafted carved gold mounting that is accented with lovely carved roses both above and below the star ruby. The ruby itself is a deep shade of red-purple. It does not display a rayed star, but like most star rubies it displays an asterism (or glowing star) when in bright natural or artificial light. The ruby has natural internal inclusions as well as natural striations on the surface of the stone. This is common for star rubies and does not compromise the integrity of the gemstone.The ring is slightly out of round from wear see photos. This is a lovely, well-crafted antique star ruby ring that would make a lovely accent to any outfit. The item shows normal wear for a pre-owned piece light scratches, dings, dents and scuff marks.
